Did you make that spoon out of a lawnmower blade?

That's awesome! I have that same Mossy Oak mug, love it. I TIG welded a handle onto it.

This mug is a Yeti, probably the same as the mossy oak. It's my most valued tool.

I make my slappers from leaf springs like the old-timers did.

Get at it! I can get this same result without the e-wheel by planishing with the slapper and dolly. Just takes a little longer. I make my slapper's the old fashion way from a leaf spring. $30 at tractor supply gets you a trailer spring with enough leaves for several slappers. A nice egg dolly is about $45. For $75 you can make a lot of parts.

Cool. That's not bad at all. Got any pics of your setup?

 Do you mean my shop set-up? Not really. There's not too much to see. You can see most of it in the background of the pics in this thread.

I make pry bars out of leaf springs too.  I am so mad I lost my original leaf spring pry bar about 3 months ago, I made it when I was about 15 with my dad >:(.
Awesome work here, love the fab stuff, it's my favorite thing to do albeit not up to you level.

I got started on the front fender mounts yesterday. Still a lot of work left.

Parts going off to paint in the morning. I'm still a hack when it comes to building bikes, but it always feels good looking at a table full of my own handmade parts.

Paint :o  Why not polish one then do the scotchbrite finish on the other one?  You are going to cover up all that excellent craftsmanship ???

  It's always bitter sweet. Paint actually shows off shapes better than polishing. But, only I'll know that the body man gets to take it easy on my parts.
