Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

So far, so good: I've brazed the acorn nuts to the inside surface of the top of the tank. I've also brazed the brass filler neck into place. I've been forming the metal as I go. I've drilled the bottom for the fuel-line fitting, it'll be brazed in next.

Then I just close the front to the top, braze on the sides, and start leak testing. I can't wait! It's so cool that I can make tanks now! Learning to braze/"weld" with Alumaweld has me feeling a lot more confident about pursuing real welding. And if I learn true welding, heck, I could make about anything. Feeling very pumped tonight.
