    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!

                              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.
