    Now I know what my next project is. What do you use to secure it up whle riding?

    Also, what did you use as a sheave? Is that a 20" rim with bolts and washers holding it on?

    I just bent up a 3/4 in. strip of 16ga. into a catch that attaches to the fender. (Google drop stand clip or catch) and the shelves is a whizzer shelves attached with Briggs control cable clips. You can find the channel steel for the stand at home depot,

    :( I have no access to a welder at all. Soon i will be buying one, Ive had a few hours experience with one. I might start looking on craigslist for a used one :)

    Any other input on where to get a double kickstand is great! Self made are always welcome too. It will give me something to speed up the process of getting this welder

    Thanks chainmaker. I searched google and now i have every bit of inspiration needed to make one as awesome as yours!

    jMrL, you can get a decent flux core welder from harbor freight for about $100. They work good enough for most hobbyists. I have a $600 lincoln that's lasted over 12 years so far and is still chuggin along. Not sure about how long the hf will last, but i have heard good things.

    I didn't know the L-4 needed a kickstand. They usually have training wheels :)
