Front bodywork

The front part of the bodywork was missing on my Special, that allows me to invent what you like in my opinion. I decided to add the missing panels bulkheads etc by fabricating the frame in 1" x 1" x 1.6mm  ERW steel square section hollow tube. I have started with a fairly simple structure but the improvement in torsional rigidly is already apparent. I tied the long longitudinal into the top of the cow horns. At this stage the joints are all just tack welded in case I change my mind.

I will add images here as I go along to help keep track of my progress.

Here is an Index page for the build
