Doing a study on how to make a looptail rear end. My tubing bender does not have a small enough die to get the tight radius I'd like, what we have here is a compromise with the tools I have at my disposal. I'd like to do more but 3k for a Di Arco tubing bender seems out of the realm for something I don't do for a living...perhaps I can make a single purpose bender for loops? We'll see.

It was a looptail study. I wanted to see if I could make a looptail rear end with my tubing bender. It was to see the limits of the tool and improve my frame building and welding skills as both need work. I made three of them. The Z frame goes to a pal. The other two, I gave one away at my coaster brake challenge, that is what will most likely happen with the other one... I'd like a tighter radius, so I'll need to make a tool if I want to do more loops. For now, on to oher things...
