Yup, yesterday was a welding day.

First off was to replace the part that was cut out of the frame before.



It went back pretty easily, including a little round plate we added in to make up for the kerf.

The stock footpegs go on with a single bolt. That doesn't have a history of working very well on dirt bikes, so I added lugs for a second bolt. Well, tried to add them. The first weld was a disaster, so I ground it out and Rick saved the day with the MIG.


Anyone have any tips on doing fillet welds on thin steel with an AC stick machine?
