1896 Roper Steam Bike, 2: The Frame Jig

The bottom head tube lugs. Fillet brazing will cover the Tig welding, and they too will look like castings.

Machining the rear dropouts. I'm drilling, then boring the two halves.

Four sets finished. They hold the bearings that support the live axle.

Tack welded into place, on the frame jig. Too bad my digital camera refused to auto focus on the nearest dropout.

Frame and frame jig. The frame is held to the boiler with ten bolts.
