Re: Rocket Science and Chopper Building

I agree with the "engineer + artist = designer" equation. Yes, we are all going for the personal vision to creation. Yes, we may build with the intent to sell, or build to ride and sell to finish the next project. Either way, it would be nice if it rode well. Ill handling machines are a chore to rid...

Those with the fab skills lack the space or tooling. I'm working on it, though. I am in the lack o' tooling boat. Gonna b...

Re: Crime Scene Knock Off Jig

I was just going through the build thread. Looking real nice. Excellent lines on your frame. Didn't we have a talk about flame thrower tips? Good luck on the girder, too.
