I should start from the beginning of why I fell in love with pie cuts.
I own a Nissan Skyline gtst sedan
that I have extensively modified for roughly 3 years now, I’ve always loved a clean and simple engine bay so this is where I’ve spent the majority of my time modifying.
I’ve wasted many hours browsing the speed hunters website
and this is where I fell in love with the unique style, use ability & look of pie cut (Lobster Back) bends.
they provide an incredibly diverse range of uses just from a simple pie cut piece of tube.. I’m getting a little off topic here so let’s get back to it
once I had seen Pie Cuts appearing on Instagram and Facebook I couldn’t hold back I needed to have some pie cut bends in my life.
it’s funny that I started the story about my Skyline, As my first encounter with pie cuts was actually building a 4” 304 Stainless Steel snorkel for my Isuzu Dmax ute, I decided how I wanted to build the snorkel and what material I wanted to use but when it came to the bends I could not for the life of me find any where to buy pre made pie cuts that were ether
(A) Affordably priced
(B) Able to ship to Australia with out costing the earth
or (C) In a cut angle that suited my needs
So I set out to make my own.
this proved to be a lot harder and 3x more time consuming then I could have ever imagined! This was before I even considered TIG welding them all together ( Let’s take a moment of silence for all of the fabricator’s who spend hundreds of hours cutting, prepping and then meticulously welding together beautiful pie cut bends )
Believe me this shit isn’t easy it took me a good 3 hours to just get the cut angle correct for what I needed then another 1.5 hours to finish and prep all the pieces. There had to be a better way!
essentially this is where the start of the idea for Bend Brothers was formed
Australia had a massive hole in the market and I intend to fill it!
After much deliberating and searching I finally found a supplier who was able to produce the quality that I felt was up to the standard required
many late nights and early mornings later of reaserching and learning about the different grades and quality’s used in the Motorsport industry I was finally ready to place my first order and we have continued to grow from there.
I would like to thank all the people who have supported and helped me already in this journey I couldn’t have done it with out you.
