Not bad for a fluxcore welder huh. Still doesn't look as good as tig but it should hold my heavy a** lol.

It ran okay at the time. Had I shortened the intake it would have ran perfect but as of right now I will probably put the originals back on when all is said and done. Got enough money in the project to be fooling with the intake again lol

Which side? I'm going to get the other top bar welded on in just a few. Can't do the bottoms till a) motor is pulled and b) the local machine shop bends my tubes so that I don't have to run straight tubes.

So....  I like the springer front end and I like the idea of a hardtail on this bike.  I'm just not digging the design on the rear you have going there. I do want to see how it gets finished up though.

Yeah the design is alittle far from what I wanted. I was worried about the structural integrity of the top bar if it was damn near flat at the connection . If I was using a tig machine Id be doing all sorts of designs buuuuuuuut I don't. I'll post a picture in a bit when I get the bottoms welded on . Got them at least fitted with the 3/4" rods and I pulled the motor so that I could move the frame around better .

that top tube being bent is the issue, it will be constantly flexing
it should be straight or another added at the bend to tie things together
