My Bobber Frame Blueprint Comments

Thanks for the blueprint for the bobber frame
. It looks great to me. I must admit that I´m a novice in building a custom chopper. Here in Denmark, where I live, custom choppers are not so usual as in the USA, so it makes it a lot more difficult to built a bike. I can not just drive for a shop to buy certain parts for the bobber, because we have none. Of course we have Harley dealers, but they only have original spare parts. So I have to make my plans for the building and order all needed parts in The States.
By the way, I have some questions...
1. The tubes are made by carbon steel. Can You tell me how many % of carbon there is in the tubes used for the bobber frame?
2. On the axle plates there are two fields, where the tubes are welded to the plates. Do I understand it right when I say this fields are milled down to a certain gauge of metal?
If I´m right, how thick is the steel there?
Thanks in advance!
Many greetings from Denmark
