My BMW Bobber, part 59
CAD version here

We continue the removeable front tankmount; I cut a cardboard template for the correct shape and Aad carefully bends the tapered stainless parts under the press. A small piece is TIG welded in between to add strength. Ofcourse after welding the part is bent, this always happens with stainless steel... so we bend it back and later it will be polished..


I made a CAD drawing of the flanges for the Stromberg carbs and Emailed it to the lasercutter, a week later the flanges arrived, cut from 8 mm stainless steel. Only minor finishing is neccesary, and for small numbers of parts it is cheaper than waterjetting.
