I'm offended at how annoying it is to read your posts.
No, but I'd say you are lucky to have a friend who charged you beer rates. If I did make these, at $50 an hour, I'd guess it would cost you at least $150. Possibly more.
I haven't put my plates on yet. Not sure when I'll get around to it, but I am pleased with them. Yes, they'll take some modification. I think that's been covered a while ago. But they'll work.
Anyway, how about some photo's of this fabulous work?
If you like to direct you sh....ty little comments to me .. that would be fine.
If you didn't like the work then you should have taken on the task yourself.
This inmate drove to california with a frame to have it measured ( on my dime) then drove back to AZ. (1000 f..king miles) dropped my frame off to have it repaired and went back home and sent the pieces out.
So far I'm out over $700 for this goodwill task. NEXT TIME YOU TAKE THE TIME TO DO IT.
I had them return to me at my cost. I've learned a lesson in all of this .. next time I will do it for myself and maybe a few close fellow riders. Yeah I'm kinda of PISS at your remarks. You hide behind the thread you never PM to talk about it. What makes your guy any better? What is he charging you? Bet not $55
In all honesty SLACKER, go ahead and blame it on MARYLAND. I used to live there too. When I was there I pissed off people every effin day. I took pride in it.
Then I moved back to California, and eventually to the desert where there's not so many people around.
I'm much mellower now and I don't have any stress anymore.
For you though, maybe Montana would be good..................
Anyway, thanks for mannin' up and doing the right thing. It makes us all feel just a little bit "mellower".
I agree! this is how i did it. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?p=19892361#post19892361
Apologies if this is 205. I had not seen it and thought I had watched all his videos. Soundtrack is dreadful, but the break happens around, or is discovered at 11.00. Watch the whole thing as there is some good riding. I think that's Michael with him, who now owns HPN 663. Guess the brace for the top tube is important

I have watched this before and studied it and the break appears to be rearward of any HPN bracing.
Uhmmmm...wasn't being serious, PHil. Hence the smiley.
Opps , kinda buggered that frame though. Handling like the Rubber Cow
I've never seen a fatigue crack at right angles to the tube before. Could there have been a previous weld or seam at that location?
I've seen that exact same crack in the spine of a stock G/S that's done about 500,000 miles, most of it fully loaded and two up. It got repaired in a rural garage in India and has held for at least 150,000 miles.
I watched about five minutes? I have never seen anybody stand up on perfectly smooth surface until having heard of people spending hundreds if not thousands of dollars basically learning to do just that. What a waste of perfect sit down and haul ass time. It saves your energy and gets you there faster doing it! But I guess it isn't trendy!
Best part of the video is of the 2up LOADED Beemer at minute 12.48.
I washed that and I simply do not care. Not impressed but that was why I stopped watching it at around five minutes. Nein danka!
I caught him welding the frame. That is the weakest part of our frame. I have seen fatigue cracks at right angles to the tube many times over RRS. Not on beemer frames but. Where that frame broke does not surprise me in the least.
You would need overload springs for your 1/2 ton pickup to carry all that crap. And people are surprised when their frames break.
welding on a frame causes the base metal grain to change and causes stress risers in that area. the tube is going to tend to crack at a weld. as an aircraft mechanic i have done a lot of welding on tube aircraft fuselages. reinforcements and repairs need to be done as diamond type patches with long longitudinal welds. Look at AC 43.13 for some ideas.
enjoyed the video! on field temparary repairs are a bit crude some times!!
I read up to page 36 and so far its been riveting!
