i know, lol. we both have iphones now, his ericsson died after superglue got in the sim card. the 2 times ive ever fallen was when it didnt have a kill switch and i started it, while i did not know it was wide open, and it took off with me on the back hanging on. second epic fail was the front axle nut came off and i lost the front tire riding on grass.

Nice bro, Is that a pocket rocket engine? 50cc?

I'm still working on the bike just ordered the pillow blocks, there's 14$ of motivation into this thing lol. Also, I got a cast pulley and it says it's rated for fractional horsepower (electric motors) do think this will work, will it wear out or something? Don't want to order one online, they're super expensive for some reason.

i dont know where the motor came out of, i bought it off a guy used for $80. i think its from a scooter or moped. whats a pillow block? also i dont know if tis possible to break a pulley so give it a shot. mines chain driven, gear reduction and auto clutch. its a little slow, but im happy. in about 2 weeks i will have steel brackets on it.

Pillow blocks are bearings that come in a housing, they are really easy to use with axles and jackshafts

Wow, the bearings arrived today and I only ordered them like 2 days ago, that's great considering the shipping was FREE!

Unfortunately, the holes I drilled are off, because I had to drill from the bottom. I'm gonna get a metric crapton of work done this weekend and hopefully finish this thing!

There are lots of great tips, tricks, and photos in the welding section. Start up a thread and you'll be guided through how to properly weld.

2 months??? it took me about 4 months to teach myself how to weld (13yrs old) but i was only welding, maybe 4 or 5 welds once a week or less, the spent a few hours getting critiqued by my uncle. mig/flux core is pretty easy (i havent been able to try other types of welding but it was not challanging to learin woh to weld). myadvice is first, get your settings right (set it to what the mfg suggests for the thickness of your metal), bevle the edges of your metal and put them right up againstt each other to avoid blowing through easly. next hold your welding gun with 2 hands!!!!!!!! one hand on the main area with your thumb on the trigger, and put your other hand so that the angled tube going from the handle to the welding tip is resting inbetwween your nthumb and your finger, most importantly rest your hands in a comfy position so you can concentrate more on your techn iuque, not trying to steady your hands with jumpy flux core! finnally keep a slow speed, and make an over-laping circle pattern, about 2 sec per circle is good for me, not so slow that your constantly burning through, but not so fast that yu have a really thin bead,also make sure your puddle reaches well onto poth peices of water. stick out, keep good stick-out, don't get your welding tip all clogged up but keep it close enough so that you can actually keep an arc. practice for a while, and test your welds with a BIG hammer untill they don't break at all. lastly take pics of your welds, and get a few pointers from a pro. this is help full,

I prefer to support the gun nozzle, just on the handle side of the bend, with my left hand the run the trigger with my right hand. It's my dominant hand. The left hand it kind of used like a pivot support while my right hand makes the circles. Then just slide both hands slowing to advance the bead.

I have that helmet too. I set it to 9, the lightest shade, and it's still plenty dark.
