    Frame two is most of the way there, final clean up and name plate still to happen:

    Not sure I like the way this one looks as much, the geometry of the proper Moosegoose looks better... Be interesting to see how it rides in comparison.

    TIG welding is going interesting, certainly getting more practice and producing some nice welds, but I really need to build a tube notcher to get the best out of it.

    Where the fit up is neat and close I can do this:

    If there are gaps or it is uneven this is the result:

    Still, better than when I first started!

    Seat tube reamed and some temporary parts thrown on for mock-up, I like the way it looks now!

    Took a risk on a repop pad set from Malaysia, quality is very good! Color is not as pink as I thought it would be, might actually end up putting the red tires on this bike to match...

    Need to find or make some wider bars though:
