safety is great but some times if you give your 22 year old drunk brother a pull start mini bike and you know it is gonna get bloody but you still encourage with quotes like "the only thing stopping you is you"," and what is the worst that can happen it is a mini bike" and "you will be able to stop it is a mini bike, puss" next thing you know your  witnes to the greatest mini bike crash ever. SOMETIMES UNSAFE IS FUNNY AS SHIT

Tube miter program.  This lets you print out tube joint templates on paper to get your joints perfect for butt welding.  Works great!

I get not knowing, but I can't for the life of me understand not trying. It's only metal it can be fixed. Man up and risk a mistake in exchange for a lesson.

Ha... All just copy and paste my man. What model HD are you looking for? Also, make sure to let us know where you'll be hanging while Stateside. There's DTT guys willing to share a beer, show ya around town or hang in the garage in just about every corner or the US.

Hey Surplus, any chance you could repost that home-made bender link? it seems to go to a dead link...

Wish I had this info, when I picked up a CB650 bobber project. Ended up trading it for some racing seat for my car. That's some great information though.
