These images will stay in my mind the entire day or better. What a nice way to start my day. Thanks for sharing. I can't help but smile...

How often do people ride these creations. Are they more pieces of art than road going?

I'm not an iron snob, so understand I am just curious.

It's definitely not just a hard parker. I've built it to be function and form, all bikes are a piece of art to me. I just add my twist to them. It will definitely be seeing miles.

the arc pattern will be more stable and controllable if you grind the tungsten parallel with the 'grain'

you shouldnt grind it the way you did in the vid.

While the frame is getting powder coated, i decided to address some issues, small leaks, gear issues. etc.

Polished the valves, before was horrid.



New gaskets top to bottom.
