Default Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?

One of the things I got done today was I made up a laid back seat post out of the stock post on the Huffy Karaoke bike, been planning to do this for a long while since these frames are a tad short.

This make it feel so much better, set the seat back 4 1/2" and was able to lean the ape hanger bars back some for more comfort also, now when I get my new engine built for the Huffy its gonna be a real dream to ride.

I cut a large V in the post Shaft, bent it to where I wanted it, and then with a clothes hanger wire that I removed all the coating from, I used white Forney flux and my acetylene torch and mild steel brazed it all up and then slightly ground over the welded area just enough to smooth it out some.

Been a while since I did any torch welding with a clothes hanger so I enjoyed the process.

I dont always ride WOT, but when I do..I do my best to keep the rubber side down..Ride safely my friends!
