View Full Version : Almost done welding...

05 November 2010, 2210
I haven't posted anything about it in ages (since long before ElMoto.net 1.0 went boom), but i'm still working on my VF500 project. I've got the battery frame all welded up, and i'm this close (holds fingers really close together) to getting the 2 frame mounts welded onto the moto frame, and then i should be done with the welding.

Damn this is taking a long time...

PS, i'll start reposting some of my earlier blog posts for some context...

Having spent most of the summer NOT working on my bike I'm glad to come back to fimd that I'm not alone in my lack of progress.

Keep up the good work! :D

Too many pics to post directly, so check out my blog for all the pics and more history about the welding i've done: http://electriceptor.wordpress.com/2010/11/07/adventures-in-welding/

Here's a couple of pics though:

The finished (for now) battery frame:

Another shot of the battery frame:

A pic of the battery tray mount that I welded to the existing moto frame.

I'll post more of the moto frame with the battery tray mounted in it when i get some better photos!
