Waiting on the tig I decide to build a stove to keep my shop warm. Propane heaters are too expensive an I Have an inexhaustible supply of wood (own a furniture company)
So:



If anyone has ever considered one of these, go for it. It puts out a ton of heat.
I will put a squirrel cage fan blowing into the top section, hopefully keeping superheated air blowing out the vent in the front into the work area.

I had one of those double-barrel stoves in my last shop. It was 40' x 60', with 14' ceilings, and you could get the place hot enough to start sweating at below zero.

Just make sure you've got steel, not pot metal barrel bungs. The pot metal melts, and the thing takes off like a rocket!

Thanks canuman.
I think mine are steel, but I know what you mean! I took the large bung out trying to let a little more air in. When I closed the door smoke built up, billowed out the hole and then lit and it was like a flame thrower for a second I about shit myself!

Yep. You've had the experience. We built ours with the bungs toward the bottom. Everything went nicely until one cold day when we decided to put the wood to 'er, and the zinc bung just turned into soap. With that big old draft open, everything started roaring and shaking. I swear we could see the fire through the sides of the stove. Luckily, we found a stick of wood of the right diameter, and plugged it. Next day, we had steel in and didn't have a problem afterward.

Likely the cheapest high-output stove that can be found, if you're not particular about EPA.

Man I love SR500s, my buddy had one, and prior to blowing it up he'd always beat me in the drags on my ironhead, that thing was bad to the bone!

Slow progress.
I got the stem pressed out of the new triple, put the SR stem in its place.
Ordered bearings, tigged up some handlebars, got the gussets welded in and the shock mounts welded in.
Slowly coming along.
Pictures soon

I'm glad you asked haha.
Yeah I have finally gotten back Into it.
Ive even side tracked restoring a 1935 Hardinge Lathe

On the SR I got the tank mocked up in styrofoam

Then striped the wiring harness of all the crap I don't need and welded in a plate for all the electronics


Now should start assembly for testing before final tear down for finish work but there's still a long way to go.

Anyone know how I can get brake lines shortened? I prefer not to buy new ones

Oh,
Also got the front brake worked out which was a bitch.
After fighting with making an adapter for forever I finally grabbed the TIG and chopped up and old bracket and welded some 1/2" 6061 to it and redid all the mount points. It turned out well, still needs final cleanup

Thanks for the update, you're making progress!

I think you'd be better off getting a custom brake line made. There are many shops that can do it, as well as online shops. It cost me $40 including shipping and taxes to get a braided line made with the correct fittings on each end. Cheaper than a 30 year old OEM line, and it should outlast the bike. I also prefer the feel of the braided line over the squishy rubber lines, so that is a bonus to me...

Keep at it, it helps inspire the rest of us to get to work!

Thanks Joe,
Although the only thing left SR on this one will be the engine and wheels ha!
