                    Really cool project, cant wait to see the finished product. Thanks for sharing the progress. I meant to post earlier but forgot. I was wondering what the thing on the floor is in the last picture on youre first post. It looks like a little miniature Miller Elite American Flag welding helmet.
                    To all who contribute to this board.
                    My sincere thanks , Pete.

                          T Chassis,

                          good on ya! The Banshee looks hot! You will love the tig welding once you get into it! I have had my Dynasty for a couple of months now and it truly addicting! I haven't by any means mastered it but it opens up so many options as to what I can weld, my only regrets are that I didn't have one 10 years ago!

                          As for tungsten grinding, yup in the beginning you will learn as much about tungsten grinding as welding! I found that my little Dremel tool with their diamond cutoff wheel works great and takes up no real estate and (I already had it) I also got a glass smooth grind in a matter of seconds (chuck the tungsten in a cordless) the Dremel held in a vertical position.

                              Hey how do you make jigs for your swingarms and a-arms? I race them and $600 for a set of steel arms is insane and $500 for an aluminum swingarm is even worse, I've been trying to think of way to make a jig for my suzuki quadracer arms. Thanks

                                I have never made a jig for a set of suspended a-arms just jigs for a-arms like these...i have a whole new jig now and am almost finished with another chassi i will post pics of it soon....but i have been wanting to build a set of a-arms like you are talking about i just dont have a trail bike so i cant do it, and i want to build a set for a personal bike a test them before i would chance selling someone something i have never personally tested....as for swingarms i have a jig set-up to build any type of atv swingarm well as far as chain driven atv...but also have only built swingarms for drag bikes which dont do any ramping or anything, i dont doubt that i would be able to build one for trail riding, but again i want to try it and ride it personally before i would put someone else in danger....
