Re: mig vs tig

So my gas welds are self normalizing,even with the larger HAZ? I only gas weld at work,but have done a bunch of MIG on my extended arm/monoshock project. Am I asking for failure due to embrittlement?

Re: Triumph Scrambler. Hardtail "bobber" Projekt...

It's funny,but the more pics I see of the bike,the more that hardtail/swingarm section appeals to me. Its still triangular,kinda modern looking and you don't have chain issues that crop up with the...

Re: Where are the late model Triumph bobbers?

Most new Bonnie's are owned by old guys.[like me] They mostly just change pipes and such,choosing to keep that "traditional" look that they couldn't have when they were young. There are several...
