The New Car

Frame Tubes

I got a couple quotes to supply cut, bent frame tubes.  This is a type of service where you send the vendor your CAD model for each tube and they do the notching (coping) of the tube ends and do the bends.  I don’t want to mention the vendors, because I’m not trying to give them “bad press”.  However, I was shocked at the cost.  One was about $7,500.  I figure I may make more than one of these cars, whether a different version or even another for somebody else, assuming anybody wants one 🙂   So, I decided to do this myself.  It will be a significant investment, but it should be worthwhile in the end.
