My son just put a photo of his first attempt at tig welding on Facebook. Looked good for a first attempt. One of his good friends immediately posted that now all the builds that come out of the shop will be 20% lighter.

No, that would be his Dad your talking about.

Here is a photo of the "The Naug." They built it between Christmas and New Years and it will be auctioned off at the annual 4x4 meet in the fall to benefit the 4x4 club. The rod with the ball on it is the reverse shifter.

Started out as a 5HP garden tiller.

The 3D clutch has arrived at the shop where it's going to be modified.

The Advrider link comes up asking me if I want to join, so I can't see the picture.

Sorry Ludwig. I was hoping that it was visible to everyone.

Thank Tinsmith, I guess that site is like Facebook and won't allow anyone to see it if they haven't signed up. I'll ask my son to email me some photos and see how that works.

Purchased a 3D Motorsport clutch and received it a little over a week ago. I ordered it on a weekend and Danny,the owner of 3D Motorsport, had it shipped on Monday afternoon. I ordered it for the tri car originally but then saw a video that Danny posted of a Harley Davidson build that the builder could pedal start the bike with it's 1946 Briggs and Stratton engine.

I contacted Danny to see if he could convert a clutch to pedal start because the Jacobson engine that is on the tri car has had the flywheel shaved and there is really no way to use it to start the engine. I didn't think ahead with that idea.

He put me in touch with the Harley's builder who agreed to convert a clutch for me to use on the tri car so I can pedal start it. My clutch will be the second one he's converted to be used on a pedal crank jack shaft.

I'll ask him if it is OK to use his name and email. He's a hot rod and rat rod builder and owns a machine shop and I don't know if he is open to doing this kind of work other than once in a while.

Here are some photos of the 3D clutch. Some of the the builders on the forum have purchased them and are very pleased with it. I ordered a second one and had it shipped to the chap converting it. The clutch I have here now will go on the 212cc Sportsman Flyer Indian sidecar build.

3D Motorsports modified a Q-Matic transmission to install a clutch so the bike could be pedal started. Here is a link to the Harley Davidson being pedal started.
