I decided that I really wanted a tubing bender, and that I wasn't using my TIG like I thought I would.
So, I rotated my garage equity once again. The TIG machine is now gone and the tubing bender is being ordered today.
I had a little bit of cash left over from the bender purchase, so I bought a new project with which to break in the tubing bender when it arrives...
I bought this from an inmate here...a 1991 DR350S. (Thanks, Paul - nice meeting you!)
I'm going to fab a rack out of 5/8" round tube, and then make a small set of aluminum panniers. It will be my second set made.
It's physically as large as the KLR, which I like. It's 200 lbs lighter and only 4hp less powerful, so I'm thinking it's going to be a very fun bike to play with.
More pics when I have something to show.
