It is starting to look like a bicycle!

Front triangle -- welded.
Chain stays -- tacked to dropouts and ready for welding.
Seat stays -- selected.

Mike Desalvo at the horizontal mill, about to miter a seat stay at the drop-out end.  First he needs to check that the S-bend is straight up/down.  Chad (left) and Kurt (right) watch.

Tomorrow, I work on the chain then the seat stays (much harder welding than the main triangle, so I expect I will need to ask for help).  And we learn about the seat stay bridge, braise-ons and the like.  Three more days to go!
