Allrighty. After fiddeling about with placement of the saddle and marking and remarking and a trip to ACE for some replacement fasterners it all came togather and Bob had a bit of time to weld. Sportcarpats saddle will soon have a new place to live! I replaced the original rear mounting bits from Pats saddle for much heavier stock from ! BUNG KING ! Pat makes saddles for normal people. Im not "normal" At just under 300 lbs I would have over stressed the stock bits. These welds are DEEP and should clean up well today.

The way things worked out between the frame and saddle and tire / wheel arangment; I decided to splay out the rear tabs so I would always have tire clearence from the inner nut for the rear saddle stays. Looks odd I know but after messing about with every combination yesterday this was the best solution for this particular build. Gotta git me a BUNG SHIRT! AAA AHAHAHAHA

You know you got some cool rides..............

Managed to play today! Bunch of prep and layout waiting for Bob. I decided to box in the repurposed Cycle-Truck stand for strength and safety. Bought some 1" stock and went at it with torch vice and hammer. Should weld up nice.
