I needed the space in the workshop for work stuff so the buggy went upstairs  in the hay loft
I will get back on it but for now I feel like l need to bend some tube and melt some metal
and besides I am a bit further on with this than the pics show  ;)

Cool for sure. I was/am amazed that the nomad is bronze welded chassis. WTH is up with that? I mean for MX bicycles I would be OK with it but on a car?????

Arn't bikes brazed? Maybe with the ERW pipe and the bronze welded they have a different design philosophy?  They want some flex in the chassis and this is the way to do it with out cracked welds?  Counter intuitive as everybody talks "rigidity" but there might be a method to the madness?

I gotta agree with you on that. I did do a search for salvage stuff in the UK but ,nope,nothing came up.

the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a
loyalty to the American people."

I know the theory but IMO,it's not for any use where structural integrity is the most important criteria. Most bikes today are tigged as well. The brazed joint is not a welded joint even though they call it welded. It is a much weaker joining method. Probably up to the task,I mean ,haven't you seen the ads for flex tape?  :m

Well,at least we finally got a bluntly honest,for the most part,President here.

Well, because I am me, I sent them an email and asked why (always curious - non confrontational in the least) so hope to get a response?  We will see if they get back to me?

I suppose you did see the suspension arms are tigged?
