I'm looking at making a replica of the following...:
(just the special wheel apparatus on the bike, not the bike itself)
...and was thinking this might be a nice easy introduction to brazing, hopefully using an inexpensive tool like this:
My vague plan thus far involves using rack and/or fender stays, maybe some metal rod, and creating the support struts, learning basic brazing technique along the way, and finally mounting an axle nut to the top of the u-shape where the wheel will screw in and mount.
I thought I'd get a reality check from the community given the state of my plan right now. Can I effectively braze something like this using the equipment I linked to? Has anybody tried anything like this before? Any constructive comments would be welcome.
