Bobber progress

Managed to get some grinding and fitting done on the frame today, turned up some bushes for the brake cross over tube and assembled the braking system from foot lever through to the drum.

Breakin down the Bobber

The time has come in the project to do some tweaking to the frame for correct fitting of a bunch of parts just arrived.
Rear brake cross over tube needs reaming and bushed along with brake plate assembly and fitting etc.

Check out my ring

Mind out of the gutter people! Here's a first attempt at making a ring, never used a boring bar on the lathe before so today I gave it a crack.
Used aluminium and brass, bored out internal diameter, put a shoulder on the two pieces with a close tolerance press fit.
Quiet stoked with the out come and look forward to making more, perhaps reducing the outside diameter slightly.
