Sal’s Rack—Finished!

May 30, 2011

I finished Sal’s rack over the weekend, and also added some 5/16″ cromoly hoops to the frame in order to help give a clean routing path for the cables that’ll run from his dynohub in the front to his tail-light in the rear.

Here are some detail shots of the hoops, made from ~8mm slices of 58/8″ o.d. 4130 tubing, chamfered on the inside edges with a larger diameter drill bit, and brazed-on with silver.  The outer edges were slightly ‘eased-off’ by hand with a file to soften the sharp edges left from the tube-cutter.
