spend a lot of time to weld the rear anchor on the frame and nothing good. the tube is cracking just after the weld, all around !!! asked the owner, who make the frame, and it appears he don't use the good tube to do it. in fact he used what he found, i made some test, in the best case thickness is 2,5 mm, sometimes less than that. will be a crap festival all along the build. best way is to find another frame, this one will be broken quickly, especially in off road ......................bad karma

got this pipes from ,   it was a request of the owner . when i found them i've asked the seller about shipping cost : he said how much and add, if you can wait a week, i'll bring them with us, Jim & Chris have a house  nearly 40 km from here, world is small . so last sat they came here with the spares, good contact, kind people, perfect

they're installed, i must cheat everywhere cause Triumph frame is single tube, not this one. it's very close but OK

the engine is at the right place, front bracket OK, made in aircraft alloy

well, after a long hibernation there's a new project in the shed , not a chopper this time . i'll build this one for a friend, it's a kinda Rickman metisse replica frame, very close to BSA A 10 with a Triumph T 100C inside .
very close from the beginning at this time, first step : install the engine properly and in line
