copy that!

i've got a map gas torch... i hope it will get hot enough. i am going to thread and old pair of pedals in to them and then bolt the crank (at the bb interface so i dont bend parts i dont want to bend) to a board or something then torque it like crazy with a big ole cheater bar on the pedal. i will have to do it twice on each to put a s bend so. at least thats the plan... we will see some tax rtn time!!!
