I feel so inadequate
It's all relative Andrew. With the time, equipment, ability, money, we could all do that, if we had a rich relative.
Or, alternatively, we could give Vernon Wade 3 grams of pure, crystal Adrenochrome, $30,000 worth of machine tools, some flat alloy stock and see what he comes up with.
Or pitch 5 bottles of Jim Beam and an umlimited budget at Claude - now that would be VERY amusing ...
There's the makings of a really dreadful Reality TV show here:
"All Armenian SideCar Choppers" - brought to you by Uncle Ben's Perverted Mice....
Dang, HOLD ON THERE.. :huh I get 5 bottles of JB and Vernon gets all those cool tools? Oh wait...sorry...I missed the unlimited budget part. A Duh for Claude.:eek1
YADA YADA YADA YADA !!!!!!!
Goota appreciate the guys who keep metal forming alive today.

That's what I used to do for a living. Nothing like the satisfaction from getting a shape right by eye, and then not even having to paint.
Claude, I think we should team up for this. At least I know what to do with whiskey and money. Fancy tools would be wasted on me....
But the whiskey and money was what I was offered. You get the tools and what ever that other stuff was.
I am willing to share though. Lets sell the fancy tools and make our own. You sell the other stuff (sounds illegal). We'll trade the Jim Beam in on soem Jack Daniels and I will use the money to keep you supplied.....deal
Not to toot the builders horn , but the Jesse James Airstreamer is pretty freakin sweet.........
If he built it his horn deserves 'tooting'
More nice aluminum work :
And having spent the day with him a bit back... you get the impression that he's the kind of guy who'd be happy in the garage with the door shut cutting/sawing/chopping metal like the rest of us rather than being told where to stand/what to do next/where to look by a bunch of guys with clip boards.
You pegged him Bad Cat. Just hope he can continue to handle the world he is in now without flipping out.
Well, its obvious to me why its all metal.. Once the beast hits 88mph and the Flux Capacitor kicks in he can get himself a future 2020 sports almanac..
That's Mike Yeman's rig. I met him in Arkansas at the national and 2 weeks later he stopped by to see me in N. California with that rig, his wife and son on it towing a tent trailer. He hand built that whole rig himself including the leading link front end. Not bad for an Insurance Salesman from Ohio.
