    G'day Flop. Loved following along on your build all this time. Just wondering what was the main reason for swapping to the tig from the mig? Were you getting cracking already from working the metal due to the migs harder weld or some other reason?

    ahhh the lambrettas are fun and easy money James D and ya get to practice bunch of metal skills.. i will post a few pics if ya folks dont mind folks.. then headed to austin in april for the round up so hopefully i can finish up the customers 61 so i have some poncho time.

    this ones widened because its going to go on a newer 2 stroke motor. customer started it and decided he didnt have the skills to finish, the whole backof the body is a gas tank.. all the shiny metal was my doing

    [​IMG]

    this ones stretched 15 inches body and frame to make it into a 3 seat scooter

    [​IMG]

    the whole scooter is custom custom custom
    stainless insert above custom taillights visor welded to body

    [​IMG]


    Last time for me bein in jersey bill marlas comin back the end of this month...there goes all your hopes and dreams haha

    i switched to the tig Gojeep to learn how to do it.. the welds def take more of a beating but i have no problem with mig welds cracking just hammer the hell outa them before you grind them all the way.
     
  17. Love the chop. I am going to look at a 52 Cheiftain tomorrow and I will definately reference this thread if I get it and do the chop.
    Thanks for the detailed pics too!

    I used to work for a pommy boss a few years back and he always referred to a persons nose as a Lambretta (Lambretta Scooter - Hooter) Cockney slang.

    And now back to our usual broadcast....
