Did the final welding on the front bank of primary tube and collector. Only had to splice in a 1/4" on each tube and cut apart two welds....learned alot about shrinkage to say the least.
Then I straightened the bent brake side rear sets, stripped the paint, drilled some holes and mounted some modified Speed Merchant pegs.
Two stroke with a single sided swingarm, brembo brakes, an expansion chamber exhaust, and serious chunk tires. I am able to hold a camera and film with this as I only need one hand. Huge vintage motorcycle faux pas, and kinda, maybe horse traded an old, leaky, clapped out xl250 for it...But it's all in the name of art, this is for filming the new movie. That and the xl went to a SERIOUS enthusiast. He now has 10 engines. He's the head mechanic at scooter therapy and is a 100% solid dude. Kris is stoked, as she has wanted a scooter for ever.
Radiated Mutant Bikers from Outer Space is rolling right along. Just this past week Dan said "like a bike build, this is a succubus of money." fuck yeah it is.

Front bank is all fit up and ready for welding....if I can use my right hand anymore that is.
|Ill spare you the gore but you still get the idea. Mesh doesnt protect much from a 3000 rpm bandsaw blade....15 years using one and it finally bit back. Going to see my hot East Indian doctor today for stitches and a splint...rad!|
