Nice welds, Have you used clear powdercoat before, will it keep the rust monster away?

Thats guys, I used clear powder of a springer last year and so far so good, It changes the look of the bronze when they pre bake it but it looks older so its better looking anyway.

You should give the welder a high five for me, that frame is a work of art.

If you told me those welds were done by a machine, I'd believe it. WOW!

Sorry for the novice question... but what are the tubes/mounts coming off the sides of the frame? Perpendicular to the frame?
