While looking some Russian site, I come across this motorcycle. Interesting thing is that 8 cylinder engine is from the car.I use to have similar motorcycle when I was in Europe.Can't show you the pictures though, it was in 80's.It was home build frame with 4 cylinder air cooled engine from NSU Prinz.NSU Prinz was a car.NSU company was later bought by Audi.

Yad, we got this member named Snowman who welds the frames for some v-8 choppers in Oklahoma.
Here is his company's website:

http://www.v8choppers.com/

I think he could resupply you if you miss your bike.

Cool stuff, but I will have to pass it.I already have to many projects, most of them unfinished.What is wrong with me, instead to finish what I am doing, I am always looking for some new projects. But hey that's me, eventually I will finish them.

I could not believe it but they let one of their HAAS VF vertical mills run over night un attended. Coolant lines (which my machine does not have??) plugged and soaked the shop floor during the evening.

This is just beyond stupid. You should NEVER let an automated milling machine run unattended. Its just not safe! What happens if there was a nitrogen leak and the tool just dropped out of the spindle and kept going?


Well there is a difference between letting a Haas mill run unattended and letting a Mazak (Okuma, Mori Seiki) that is set up and programed for lights out work.

I wouldn't let a Haas run unattended either.

I was at one of my customer's recently and saw some of the weld test specimens prior to being cut up and tested. Looked like what a goose could lay at 1000'.... but then again they payed $13/hour starting pay....

While many can say they are welders the results speak for themselves. James said. Over the years, he’s learned all kinds of welding—tungsten inert gas, steam-injected gas turbine, metal inert gas, and even underwater. The most challenging work he’s done is seamless welding of copper. He now has that technique mastered and is building a bike made entirely of polished copper.

His most difficult job, James said, was when he worked in a Seattle shipyard, welding an aluminum bulkhead, standing outside, “knee-deep in ice water,” sparks all around him as he tried to maneuver in tight quarters.

Wouldn't you have to pass some pretty specific testing to be hired on in a shipyard? Just wondering.

Ken.
