Old faithful has been replaced by a modern type with quick change dies so it is up for sale. Has cost me $250 in materials but I'll sell it off for $200 . Takes 1.25" tubing , has a 4" radius , made using a Holden Barina Hub , spare blank hub included , new handle , proven on many bike frames and still has many years left in it. It's a heavy mother but it works very well and all my frames I've built in the last 2 years have been using this bender. Can supply plenty of pictures of bends it has done and frames it has worked on. Included is a link to were you can make your own if you have the time/inclination . Easy to adapt the spare hub to take a smaller tube size as you only have to tack a sleeve into the follower after you swap the hub. Used to have a 1" hub but a person I lent it too nicked it. Have advertised it across several sites so first in gets it. This is the bender that did last years BBO rigid GSXR , This years BBO CB750 and Bages XR600 rigid amongst others .
