Airhead subframe tubing ??

I need to make some new main braces on a /5 dirtbike subframe. They will curve around the shocks so will need to bend them alittle. Any ideas/suggestions on what to use. I assume the airheads just used mild steel, but frankly don't know much about it all. I looked at some carbon steel tubing online and lots of wall thickness etc. Thanks.
