As you all know already, nothing is new and this blog is no exception. It's full of pictures of cars and bikes, mostly stolen from somewhere or other and the odd bit of useful & not so useful information for your enjoyment.

project update

19" jones rim, de-chromed by Niphos in Crewe, if you need a part chroming or de-chroming, go to them for great value for money and an excellent service.
The rim will be blasted and powder coated to match the offset harley hub and then laced, but this won t be done until i have a few more bits to powder coat unfortunately

my tig welding

a lot more practise needed here but i think its getting slightly better

who would do such a thing...

i m sure its well engineered but they took their eye off the ball with the aesthetics's, as least they can take the engine out easily enough and put it in something better looking.

learning to tig

well i got a second hand tig welder a bit ago with a disposable bottle, and being as i have never tig'd before it did not last long, but since then i have been trying to find argon at a good price.
Well, i eventually found some and it got delivered yesterday, so today when i had an hour spare i started to practise.
Below are the results..........

the good news is i can stick stuff together, the bad news is i have a lot of learning to do, to make nice welds.

size zero
