Oh now your talkin my language!!!  My whole life i wake up at 3 a.m.  ( I hate it)  so thats when i work on my projects out in the garage.  I fire up the 4 inch grinder, 12" chop saw...etc.  My neighbors have to deal.  The wife & daughter could sleep through a frieght train.  Never bugs them.  Unless I open the big door and sit a rev the thing.  Checking timing or whatever.   But I usually hold off on that sort of stuff till atleast 6 am. 
Have you seen "Worlds fastest Indian"  its alot like that.  LOL.  They love me.  My entire bike was pretty much Built before 6 am...cause thats when I have to get in the shower to get to work on time.

I needed somewhere to bolt the lower part of the rear fender so i took the scrap part of the swingarm I cut up for the extension and added a hoop.

Keeping an eye on this one! I can relate to your insomnia, on the weekends when I could sleep in, my eyes pop open and I start thinking "Bike". Make some coffee, check out DTT, and out to the shop I go... sometimes all by 4:00 am.

Cutting the swing arm for a 4 in stretch
 

 
welded up
 

 
Did you use "internal sleaves" or "pigs"  before you welded the swingarm back up ? :o

I  osed 2 pieces of a heavier pipe that I slid into the swingarm and the took another swingarm and cut it and used 4in. to make it longer .
 
These are what I used

Cool by sequence it looked like you justed rejoined the pieces adding the extension in the middle and I was foreseeing the disaster.  But if you use an internal sleave for added strength alls cool. :)
