1896 Roper Steam Bike, 10: The Firebox

This is looking up at the firebox. The footpegs are at the top, and you can see the centre-stand.

Left side. The firebox "mouth" has been added, and also the centre-stand springs. On the right is part of the water pump driven from the rear wheel.

The firebox door was cast in brass, and machined to fit.

Here you see the three main components that comprise steam: (left to right) smoke box with chimney stub / the boiler with frame mounts / and the fire box.

Other side. The tubing for the boiler is seamless DOM (drawn over mandrel..) 8" OD with a .250" wall thickness.
