Post Modification of motorcycle is illegal in India.

Hi. I am Ghufran Ahmed from India.
I have already customised a motorcycle.
I am here to learn more about metal shaping and welding.
I am also curious to find out if we can build english wheel and other metal shaping tool in house as no one in my country has even heard or seen these tool.

Welcome to the forum Ghufran. You have found a good place to learn from. From what I have seen they can make most stuff with hardly any equipment in India, but some of us like all the toys.

Hi Ghufran. You can use anything similar to make bikes or make a new EW.
Remember the basic thing. EW must be very solid. The flexible frame is very unsuitable. Do not save material and use for example the rail and used ball-bearing . I use it to shape a wheel from a gym with a radius. You can use anything that spins. EW is no science.
Science is that a shaping. With a good basic tool, you will do everything for your dream.
