I've had a full summer, so the bike has plodded along slowly.
The foam core has been covered with one layer of glass. This stabilised the foam, and while it still isn't anywhere near strong enough, the foam can now survive the odd knock or two.
Next, holes were cut in the frame to accept the hard points for the suspension, pedals and steering. These were aligned carefully and set into place using automotive body filler. Surplus filler was ground down before another piece of glass was laid around them.
The swingarm is still wooden, but will be reinforced with carbon. So now I've got something that is actually starting to look like a bike. Tonight I assembled the major components to see how they look together.
More will follow...
