      what tube?

      Hi,

      you may have told us in an earlier post, if so could you repeat it please?

      Could you tell us what tube you're using? Size and wall thickness? And what do you use to bend and notch?

      could I inquire what area of the country are you located? I'm east of Sandy Eggo, if you're near by any chance of seeing it up close and personal?

        i use alot of different tube size....1/2" 5/8" 3/4" 7/8" and 1 inch lol....just depending on what it is...i use different sizes for bracing and things, and for brake pedal ect....and i use .058 and .065 tubing although most of it is .058...and i live in west virginia....if i lived closer i would not have a problem with that no

            Yup, looks like a good way to get yourself killed in a hurry...

            At least if I was at the controls!!!!

            Looks pretty cool.

              Actually...

              TC,

              Are you in the "city" or the "hills"? I'm from Webster Springs, I have some property near Holly River State Park.

              On the tube, what flavor do you use, HRW, DOM, 4130? What are you bending with?

              And what do you do for sand, I don't remember any in the area?

              Fred

                      Looks good. It is nice to see another duner/racer. I have built a few ATV chassis myself (both suspended and rigid) and they are a lot of fun. Mike.

                        I noticed some larger gaps in the fit up of some of your tubes. Does this present a problem when welding or create a weak point in the structure?
                        Thanks,
                        Nick

                          I am glad to see some other atv guy's on here. That frame looks good! I am going to have some pics of a 16mm "DM" triple that's coming in next week.
