    Okay built up some points with a few jobs done around the house,
    she let me back out in the yard and into this build! Found a bit of
    scrap from the pile and came up with a solution to the bit of frame
    in front of the seat, much more flow to her me thinks!

    Also made a crude wooden jig, usually use the mark 1 eyeball before
    I weld so new ground for me, she will be super straight this one.

    You should try to grind the paint off before you weld it. It will make a cleaner weld.

    Yep will do, started using a Tig welder and the metal has to be almost perfect, no impurities.

    Some progress finally, got a roller but not a rider as yet! Frame welded
    mocked up brake and gear cables, pedals, chain and a stand to go, then
    filler, prime and paint, hey the home straight, yeah right!

    Really wanted this one low, really happy with the aggressive rake of the forks.
