 When these were made up, I trust the bottom was welded, did your guy braze the top on?

 I just blasted both of mine, one is fine and the other is a little bellied at the top. I might have to do this to one, if its easy enough might as well do both....

Dutch had it, I'd posted pics on my thread "Rusty" and I think there are some good slider pics on my road rocket racing sidecar thread too, before I painted them.
I wanted a TLS that didnt look too non standard and have a few spare brake plates so my trustee engineer converted the SLS plate. The hub is later 68/70 flanged type.

I'll confirm with my engineer how he assembled it. I recall the tricky bit is the mudguard mounts as its easy to distort the tube and we had a slight tight spot to relieve with a flapper wheel.

Sadly all these sliders are well worn and fresh ones make sense.
