First bits arrive!

Those guys at Ceeway were quick. The first parts I ordered are with me already. They dont look like much but they are the main conecting components between the wood and the metal. They are, a mild steel blank bottom bracket and a long piece of mild steel head tube. There is enough head tube for several bikes.

The plan now is to buy some plywood from Avon Ply and shape up the main frame. From this I will be able to measure up the plates I need to weld to these new metal parts, for the best join. Both are high stress parts so getting the size and placement right crucial.
