    I can weld, and braze/drive a torch, but I think I will buy my own cheap MIG before heading up there and letting you tattoo her :lol3

    At least I don't ride a cheap copy, like a Stella. Our's is the REAL thing. :ksteve

    Here's an idea. Why don't you weld your mouth shut so I don't have to listen to your nonsense anymore?

    Good idea?

    More farkle ordered, I need to call Scootworks and SCOMO to get some things cleared up on little bits here and there, but it's starting to come together.

    Anybody have any good, cheap ideas on a work stand to support my baby while she's being operated on. I have one of the Sears hydraulic bike lifts and with the tie down straps, pulling the engine is easy, is that the best deal all the way around - just thinking about the future when she's painted and purdy.

    I've got a Harbor Freight lift. I think I'll need to pull the exhaust off for it to work well, but then it should rest nicely. I have not used it yet though.

    Yup. You nailed it exactly. :thumb

    There's just something extra :evil about doing it with 50's technology and skinnyass 10" wheels. :poser
