6061 alloy plate, 4mm for the bottom long base and 3mm for the rest. No heat treatment has been done, and all my riding so far has not caused and stress fractures or cracks yet. That includes some 5ft drop offs, a set of 30 steep steps and 15-20ft bmx park jumps.
I didnt do the welding, im crap at it. I can tack and thats about it. A friend of mine who worked at Spondon for 15 years (motorcycle frame builders) did the tig welding. His skills are fantastic!
He is now into e-bikes himself after playing with this and my Bomber, and he will work on any frame anyone wants modding. A copy of mine will cost roughly £270 now we have a pattern for the box section.
Nice work. Right where did I put that hacksaw
How did you strip the paint off? Bead blast?
Do you have any more pics of the fabrication?
