A quick one









Aluminum isn't heat treated its tempered, thats why the alloys will usually end with a number after a "T". (6061 T6). Iron is heat treated. So you won't remove it with a weld you just cause what is called a H.A.Z. (Heat Afffected Zone). Sometimes, depending on how its welded, this zone will become so hot and large that it could crack. Poor gas shielding can also exaggerate this.

Those are the facts, I think it will more than likely hold, so long as the welder is skilled. But my major concern is alignment. A jig is gonna be required because the metal will move and shift as it heats/cools. And a few degrees out of alignment could cause a big difference.

this is very true

Illegal as . We have worked with auto theft guys lots of times. If you think you can weld something in & they wouldn't notice.....go right ahead & try. I've seen them read vin numbers that were ground completely off. Keep in mind, that an altered vin whether its yours on paper or not is instantly confiscated & typically destroyed by the state. Including all parts you have added to it to fix it up. If you're having a really good day you face some felony charges to boot.

As I stated before...I could care less, it's not my bike, I WAS doing the rebuild, but I have opted out of it, and now he will have to figure out how to put it back together on his own...

A lil advice to everyone here...If you haven't put a deposit down for someone to work on something, then don't talk to them when they have it torn down and you don't know how to put it back together...
