Thanks. I tend to do my work piece-meal, particularly as my bike is also my daily commuter vehicle. I figure I'll take care of the kickstand (which is REALLY annoying me since I keep bending the foot on rocks) first. For me, even that little fab job is probably a full weekend's worth of work. Yes, I'm disorganized, slow, and a bit sloppy too (or so my wife tells me). I'm also not much of a welder, although so far I haven't had any of my welded parts actually fail on me. Replacing that lower sub-frame can be a story for another day.
