i think i am getting better tho.. IMHO aluminum is alot easier to weld.. .. well, sometimes. lol
that kickstand fought the fuck out of me.

autogenously welded (no filler) on the box. 4043 rod (aluminum) on the R6 stand.



traced rought outline and nice radius with washer..







ECU unplugged, battery unhooked.. tacked then removed and slapped in a vise for the rest.






box





I just looked at whiteys build thread and JIZZED IN MY PANTS

Nice work, my boy!

I have thought about picking up an XS650 for a project myself, lots of stuff to do to a bike like that.

On your first battery box you made, the end melted because you were carrying the heat into an area where there is little metal to absorb it. Start from the outside edge when the metal is cool, and you will not melt the ends like that.

theres a ton more. still got fabbing to do tomorrow. gotta weld steering stops on the other frame.. the wheel turns like, 180* lol.. 90* from "straight".. seriously. no stops.. could kill someone like that.

still got my turbo build pending.. got .. idk what else going on. lol.. lots of stuff tho.

have an R1 in need of a pan crack fix as well. probably gonna zap that in the next few days. the CR250 tard is still in waiting.. not my call on that.

hopefully i get better at tig welding. i'd really like to have this shit on lock by the time i'm ready to fab my turblow mani up. the airbox i'm not too worried about. i seem to weld aluminum way better at this time.. been doin it longer tho too. steel is a different animal.

thank ya sir!

ya i started on the opposite side, had my downslope cranked up a little bit so it didn't taper off arc instantly.. so i got a little overzealous with the pedal for some stupid reason at the end and the d.slope auto-reset the time and maintained arc. lol

i usually keep post flow at about 4 seconds and downslope around 2 or so.. unless its thin then i can rock the pedal on then let it idle with just base current keeping things at temp. using pulsed DC on that.
i aspire to be a robot like you some day

today. crafty utilization of ER70S tig filler wire. lol

had a bunch of other shit going on today. not much time to get on this project. got it fired up today tho, sounded ok.
heres with just the wires where they'd naturally chill. tank covers NOTHING so i want everything perfect and bent at 90* angles. the wires coming off the points (yes.. points ) are really flexy.. lol.. so i made liittle stays for the wire.








oh. heres that 10-R that had the leaky oil pan i welded up.




built this over the last 7 months too.

lol. no. i lied... but i might be fixing some shit on it. came in today on consignment. motor is dragging and won't start. could be rings.. could be starter.. not sure yet.

ER70S-2 work well for routing wires or do you prefer ER70S-6?

show me some pics of the ones you've built when you're done.

I want one - don't know if I have the time/resources to build one right now.


someday.. I may own a whitey custom.

i think the one i built in WV is sold, but i can probably get pics. it was a 750 nighthawk bobber.

then theres these two. i should have both done within 2 weeks.
