I decided I wanted to use some pretty stiff stuff for the
rear fork as I might do this frame as a single-sided rigid - if I got the balls.
Below is the aforementioned saw used so that I can do a tight bend on this 1x2
rectangle tubing. Also, because I don’t wanna spend da money for a square die
just for this project. I call this my “poor man’s tubing bender.”
Next, I throw the tubing is a vice and pull to roughly a 90 degree angle. Below
I have them in side by side, so I can match up the gaps (jam a big, heavy flat
blade in the gaps and pry) so I can match the bends.
Below is the rear fork legs jigged up to exactly 90 degrees so that the gaps can
be tack welded to hold it where I want it for now.
