Remember when you were a kid and you had to flip yer bike over to put the chain back on.........





I managed to get the brackets and bullshit for the center stand off and grinded down. Working on fitting the bottom tubes for the hard tail,,,its difficult to get a good angled cut on 1/8" wall tubing with a sawzall and a rickity vise! Plugging away,,,slowly but surely. I may not have mentioned it but My goal is to ride this bike to the U.P. in August,,,gotta get my ass in gear!

Dude, when I saw that picture I thought the same thing. Then I laughed my ass off when I read that. Here's a tip for cutting those tubes. Tack weld a piece of flat stock on each side of the tube you want to cut. Use these pieces of flat stock as a blade guide. Do this and your cut will be surgical.

Frame looks good so far. From your pics it looks like you have plenty of room in your shop. Quite a change from some of the garage corner, basement, living room builds you see here. Many have proven you don't need a big shop, but it sure as hell makes it easier when you can move around. Is that by chance a Husky cut off wheel? I have some Husky air tools and I love them. Bought them a couple of years ago and have had excellent service. The only air tool that I have seen that has a Lifetime Warranty! Don't know if they still have that warranty or not. I had to warranty my Husky angle grinder due to misplacing it and having it rust up. I oiled the shit out of it and got it spinning again, sounded like hell, so I took it to Home Depot and they gave me a brand new grinder. I think I paid $60 initially. Not as nice as some of the $200-$300 ones but for the price and the warranty a guy can't complain.

Yeah it is a husky and it works well. Not sure about the warranty,,,but I have had it for two years with no problems. I am fortunate,,,I have a huge garage,,,,and its heated. My biggest problem is that I dont have enough tools so I am always having to improvise,,,,and as everyone knows,,,,having the right tool for the job makes things so much easier. A prime example....had to bend the tube I put in there yesterday so that it would clear the shaft,,,,,,So I stuck it in the wood stove for a couple minutes to get it hot,,,,pulled it out,,put it on the floor,,,and beat it with a BFH. It worked but sure would have been easier with a torch and tube bender.
