Today we dedicate to the tube’s bending. Before the curving the material is heat treated through long annealing cycle for one night. After we have to move quickly 🏃♂️becouse the material has a limited time before returning to T6 status, when the tube returns to be too strength to be bended.
This is #Superbike #panigalev4 rear frame for street fuel tank. We have just finished to carefully ✋ hand brushed the component. As in racing, the rear frame is supplyed without painting, to save the weight ⚖️.
At first we clean the welds with a mild abrasive brush. Later we smooth the imperfections with the orbital sander and then we refine with straight air grinder with the auxilium of an abrasive cloth wheel. The final touch is realized with the scotch brite.
