Here are pics from Scum's build on the old board showing how he formed his rear hoops for his chopper. This method is a little different from the multi-bend method gary shows on his frame build. the method has fewer bends but has to be slugged and gussetted more.

SELF INTRODUCTION: Hello everyone. first of all a big thanks to "Dan the Man". Some of you know me from the previous (2) boards and some don't, so here goes. I have been a fabricator/welder for over 40 years now. Damn that's a helluva long time to do anything! Anyways, I have built literaly 100's of street rods, pro streeters, racecars, bikes and trikes over the years. Never made the headlines and never will. I do what I do because it is the love of my life.
I enjoy reading the posts on the forum and try to contribute when I can. I am sure that this will be every bit as good as the CBH forum, as we will have most of the same folks. Good luck and post a lot of pics!! Jim

Why would you piece it together like that when you could just figure the width and make two bends, so it is one continuous piece?

this was his first ground up build. He may do it differently now. For the first timers this is an easy way to do it.
