I got an early 38 frame back from sandblasting and saw some things that I didn't like. This is the right down tube, somebody over tightened the crash bar u bolts and crimped the tube.
HEre is one of the bottom rails
and the other side. This thing was a little beat up, too beat up for my liking, so I cut it up to replace some tubes.
Here it is, the neck casting is sorted out, as is the lower motor mount and bottom gas tank mount. I have to clean out the sidecar loops and then it will be ready to go back together. This will make a good repair!
