Yea really nice clamps... manna from heaven... they just miraculously showed up in the mail  cheers
I think the seat pan is .050 or .063... I moved placement of the frame member to the crouch belt attachment, so the bottom of the pan will also need to be adjusted a little... lot to do before that.  Found JD2 has a 7.5 CL radius die for 1 5/8 tube... may be the new solution, that will be plenty of room compared to the old 6 inch CL cage.  Just have to find someone that has one or someone with a JD2 bender....

OK folks, anyone plan to be traveling the NW corridor I15 at hiway 30 in Idaho toward Denver, Nebraska or Kansas in the very near future... and willing to pick up a bender and drag it toward me?
Sid has offered it up, any help would be appreciated with beer, wine, whiskey and dinner on this end.

Floor structure is made and tacked in place except the seat back which requires the rear roll bar before it can be finished.  This is what I think will work and be safe.
