Here are the beautiful welds I`m going to grind off and redo :-)

I've seen worse....I've done worse for that matter

is that pile of coathangers your supply of filler rods for oxy welding?  does work in a pinch (or period of poverty for that matter)
short fast loud, three things punk rock and vmaxs have in common

I'm not quite sure what it is?  All I know is that it was close to an inch thick, and still had pin holes and you could hear the exhaust popping through.  I did grind off a small section just to see what was going on underneath that mountain of steel and it literally took me 2 minutes to weld it and grind the small section I did. What I did find is that it was cracked all the way around.  I'm pretty sure he hit something with the exhaust, because the bottom pipe is beat up and the pipes are bent.  May try to save this thing in the future, but for now I just put it on and called it a day. The bike sounds good with the new muffler I got, too   :D

Thanks everyone for your posts.  I've decided to put the bike in hibernation for the next 10 years.  Till then, I'll collect some parts to rebuild/restore it when I semi-retire.  Thanks again  :)
