msf0002 More parts today and tomorrow, can’t wait to get my frame and swingarm back from powder this weekend (hopefully.)

msf0002 Stripping front wheel and gas tank for paint. And the parts just keep rolling in. Racetech springs, new headlight, left hand controls. Just ordered a big batch of stuff that should be here Wednesday and Thursday.

msf0002 Yea the chain wear is pretty extreme, I will definitely be using the chain guard which whoever owned the bike definitely didnt, that wear goes all the way around.

I meant to take some video of the brazing but it would have been boring. And I’m not that good at it
so there was plenty of grinding and sanding.

Just dropped my parts off for powdercoat a couple hours ago so should be getting those back in a couple weeks

Nice work.
I am next inline to try this brazing.
I assume the aluminum rod began to melt the minute the swingarm reached about 700 degrees?
I wish you would have taken some video bro

msf0002 Well I spent pretty much all day learning how to braze and grinding and sanding and overall I would say I’m 85% happy with how it turned out. There are a couple pin holes and places I couldn’t really get to but I’m going with a matte black powder so I think it will look nice when all is said and done. This isn’t a show bike so I think it will be okay anyway. I guess I will learn a lesson on how well powder covers minor imperfections at least.
