Bike looks good. You've made it this far you should look around for a small lincoln or something. I never welded either until I put my bike together. I didn't have a garage either. I welded bits and pieces in my bathroom. Haha. Just a thought. Good job so far.

Are you in Philly proper or the burbs? I'm in Havertown, but I have a friend in S. Philly building a bike as well and is an excellent welder. Maybe he's looking for some side work.

I'll give him a ring tomorrow and let you know or put you in contact w/ him. I have a welder as well but he is far better than me. I'm only a mile or so from you so maybe he can just use mine.

Be very mindful of gasoline leaks or spilled flammable fluids/vapors with your furnace so close by.
