As of this morning, this is what NBWS looked like.

Big bro came back down after lunch and got stuck into cleaning all the welds back so I had fresh smooth steel to work with this arvo.

I made up a small jig to hold the crank tube in place while I attached the holding tubes in their new location.
Ed approves of the new location by the looks lol

Have to order some tube tomorrow and have it bent to suit the rear wheel cradle width.
I'm also going to flatten the front 250mm of the centre bar because the new front filler section I photo shopped in makes the top bar look rounder than it really is.
Hopefully more pics to come sooner rather than later.

Chop it up, weld it back together, story of my life Rob :yelrotflmao:

Seeing as I have to be out of the workshop in 2 days time I thought I better make a move on this before it gets stuck in the shed until god knows when.
I mocked the wheel back up and held a bit of bent tube up beside it to see what the new rear cradle was going to look like ... and shyte it was! So I ended up replacing the upper and lower front tubes because they were a bit mangled from the "chopping out" process. Then welded it back to the frame, and widened the seat frame a bit to suit.

With wheel mocked back into position.

I've always had a 1/4 drive 4mm socket that has never been used before, so I decided to use it on NBWS :hihi:

Posted Image

Please excuse the crappy iPhone pics but it's all i had at work today as I forgot to take the camera for once.

Hey Glenn
It is heaps easier to sit in the shed, drink beer and watch Slydog do the work.

I wish I could afford it Eddie, I really do.
I've got the new steel rims trimmed and ready to go, just have to get a centre section rolled up and weld it in. Then I can start mocking everything up again ready to do the chain crossover.

Nath's wheel is at the machine shop getting spacers fabbed up for it ATM so if they work on time I'll be close to having Naths going in the next week or so.

Hey Glenn these are pretty cheap if you wanted to ditch the front spoked rim, you can get them in pairs too

They have a 6 bolt disc brake hub on them aswell to run a 200mm front disc rotor instead of an ugly V brake

I quite like the spoked wheel that's on it now Clint. The rear rim will be radial spoked to match.
The way things are going I may need to borrow a sled for Wagga this year Rob, too much going on to work on NBWS and get it ready in time.
