Metal fuel tank taking shape.

I went over to Chris' workshop last Wednesday to see the progress. The fuel tank looked great. A very good interpretation of my foam model. I spent ages looking over it and we discussed a few different aspects, but basically he'd got it spot on.

The tank is currently just a top with no base or innards. Those comes next...

Even the rough tank was perfectly square.

Metal plates welded to the frame hold the tank in place as it doesn't yet have a bottom or mounting brackets.

The 'knee hollow' is a thing of beauty.

The lines of the bike are coming together.

Richard and Chris discuss the intricacies of metal working... either that or which curry to order...
