Well it's been about 6 weeks since we heard a word from the lukinator,,,, the full body cast must be gettin ready to come off and all the sutures removed from having the scooter surgically removed from his a$$ ,,, a word to the unwary ,,, unless you are a really good welder/ fabricator,, do not cut main frame members and then use a cheesy a$$ wire welder to tack it back together and " hope it holds"
I'd pay $1000 to see a NONPHOTOSHOPPED pic of the rear half of the scoot hanging out of his butt,,,(this means you Richard),,,,,maybe that will be his headstone,,,,buttcheeks with half a Riva sticking out of the ground,,,,,,, ,,,,I JUST MADE A FUNNY!!!!!
Not going to comment one way or another on anyone's welding skills but the wire welder had nothing to do with it.
I can weld anything with a wire or any other kind of welder and make it hold, how good you might ask am I?
Let's just say if I had been there when the Titanic was built it would still be afloat. Nuff said!
But the Titanic was riveted. How's your hammer skills?
I know it was riveted, (the sides) but I was just using this as a relation to the fact of if I did it she would still be afloat. While I know one can buy a cheap little wire welder at about any hardware which I also own, it's not the welder but the skill of who's using it. they are rated at a certain thickness and have a variety of wire types to choose from.
Tubing on just about any two wheeled machine even at it's best is no bigger than 14 gauge and a good wire welder with someone who knows how to set the heat and feed speed correctly can in some cases weld it back to a stronger joint than factory welds.
