    Yall dont have an intro section, so I will start here.
    Learned to gas (O/A) weld in Jr High, stick (SMAW) in High school.
    Picked up MIG and TIG a few years back and still learning.
    Been working on a project for a bit (14 months LOL).
    I get the news letter and joined the group to pick a few brains and try to help where I can.
    I have been doing some sort of repair work all my working life, autos, boats,
    guns, computers, HVAC&R, and restaurant cooking equipment.
    My project is a V8 Trike, 350 CID Chevy, Mazda IRS from a 929, and a frame that I am building.

      Saw your post and the pics...dang son, you might want to stroke that small block if you want to hall that frame and SPRINGER around. That is one steroid loaded scoot!

      Good thing it's a trike. If it ever went over, it would probably end up as highway art.

      Nice weld BTW.

      I just registered here the other day and am fairly new to welding myself but hope to learn a little from all of the experience being shared.

      Hope the scooter turns out to be everything you are looking for, had to sell my Harley to stay in the house. Laid off 7 weeks ago and still no bites on all the resumes I have been sending out. Retirement funds are the next to go but if I don't find something soon, I think I will pretty much qualify as retired anyway.

      Have a Blessed Merry Christmas!

                    John, caliper on each side, 4 piston Brembos.

                        Thanks James, been getting parts for over 2 years and building for over a year.
                        Can only work on it on the weekends, maybe 3 to 4 hours a day.

                          Nice bike. BTW I would sugest that you invst in some jack stands insted of those sicors jacks to suport it.

                            Looks like a pretty wild project!!!
                            Oh by the way welcome!!!

                              Thanks guys.
                              The jack stands are not used now, they were for getting it level at the time to get things lined out. Hey, they come in real handy for fine adjustments.
                              That gas tank wont be used for the Trike, got a 78 Nova to build a drag car out of.
