Missed this thread.Good luck with the project,buddy.
I'm sure everything will work out just fine, and that you'll go on to get the bike registered!
Where have you been importing the parts from?

Sorry to keep everyone waiting, realized there were some calculation mistakes in modelling the neck region of the bike. Re doing some of it again, hence the delay. The final welding of the frame will take place within a week... hopefully

Finally managed to get the Neck, Backbone and the Downtubes to align properly. Took almost 10 days of rigorous calculation and meticulous grinding, some more parts need grinding and finishing around the seat post and stanchion.

Some pics attached. Apologies to have you guys waiting.

All the best with your project luky.

Where is the work happening?

The last post stole my question. How does one register such a hand built machine in namma bengalooru / anywhere in india?

I replied to this question earlier on in the thread... i'm not worried about getting the bike registered. Will find a way, concentrating on the build for now.
