Can anybody suggest a welder in the Spokane area?

I'm installing a Scotts damper on my KTM and am looking for a welder to mount the post to the frame. It's not a big job but the post needs to align with the steering head angle and I'd like a clean weld.

So far a lazy search has only found shops that give a less than confidence inspiring "Uh ya, I think we could probably do that." sort of response.

My buddy Joe is an expert welder and a motorcycle racer/fabricator. 928-0701. Near Sprague and Park.

I use this shop often, and they have been excellent - they are on Freya a few blocks south of Francis, east of Market. They really know how to make a beautiful bead. I recently had them weld a resonator onto a stainless exhaust system.

OTH you really need to get the parts set up for welding - they are not really a custom fabrication shop, they just weld stuff. They can clean off the parts if needed, but there shouldn't be a lot of fiddley stuff for them to do, or it can end up costing you. Labor is money.

Cash or check, I don't believe they accept plastic.

I think I used Bills Welding years ago, on the race car, and was satisfied. Good welds at a reasonable price.

I use T-2 these days. Fabrication and welding. Currently 12 welders. They had a TIG specialist on staff last time I was there.

They are honest. If they can't get at it, they will refer you to a GOOD welder.

Tell'um Dick, thetourist, sent you.

On the very north end of Pines. about two blocks north of Trent on Pines.
