Default Re: Project Ideas

You could start with something simple like toughing up the frame by adding gussets in all the right places then welding or brazing them in along with an explanation or report on how and why these little extra pieces of metal make a big difference in strength and rigity without adding too much weight.

Another one but more advanced would be to make a torque pipe for your engine... this takes a little more skill because it requires forming sheet steel into conical shapes then welding it all together, I'm still at the shop or I could send you the link to the plans... I can send the link when I get home tho since that's a really good power adder and you can't buy one... the only way to get one is to make one.
