brake line thru a frame, steel pipe thru frame

Has anyone ran a piece of steel pipe thru a boxed frame, welded it on either side then tapped it at both ends and use this as a brake line thru the frame? Just wondered how it works, what size pipe and any dos and donts to consider. I have seen this a few times but never tried it, and would really like to.

Thanks in Advance.

Why would you want to do that? Maybe, I don't understand what you are saying.


Just run the brake line through the frame. make sure that it is fastened securly, to avoid vibration where it might wear through.

Dont use pipe.
If you are going from hard line to hard line, use a piece of 5/8 or 3/4" solid round, HRS or CRS doesnt matter, drill through with 3/16" , drill and tap both ends to 1/8 27 npt and use adapters 1/8 npt male to 3/16 flare. There is no good way for you to put the flared seat in your thru fitting so you are stuck using adapters. Drill a hole in your frame that fits your round stock size and weld that part in. You will probably have to chase the threads after welding, especially if you use the 5/8"

The premade SS through frame adapters from speedway are 24.00 a pair. I like those. Goes from 1/8' npy to # 3 AN.

I'll bet that you can find the drilled tube somewhere, I thought I'd seen them also, do a search on google.

later,
mikey

Yep...they are easy to use and have a nice clean look. Don't have to worry about rust getting in your brakefluid either.

Those are nicer than the speedway ones, You don't have to use an adapter or a 90*

They also cost a little more $$$ but when you add the cost of the 90* or a adapter ... it works out about the same . He has them with a single inlet and a dual inlet ...

I always use them on my own stuff ...

I use them front and back on my T-Bucket. They come in two different lengths, so measure twice and order once.
