Next up was to clean up the bottom triple tree so I can figure out what to make for a head light mount. Unlike the harleys, yamahas, etc, there are no tapped holes in the front of this casting. This tree only has one and it's going in the wrong direction, plus its sticking out like a zit. Time to cut it off!
Ground down, and made a v groove for the weld. Also with this casting there isnt enough meat to drill and tap new holes in the front for a mount. So what ever plate I make, it will have to be welded on. No big deal.
No photos of the welding process, (forgot the camera) I just heated the casting evenly using a torch, brushed it clean quick, and then just welded it up with the mig.
Then I smoothed everything out including the rough casting marks all around the piece. Its as smooth as a baby's ass.
All this work I should almost get the bottom tree chromed!
Mock up for the headlight. I almost feel like the light should come up about an inch.
Side view doesnt look so bad.
This view it seems like the light should come up a little. Opinions?
