Look very functional now.

Liberty has never come from Government. Liberty has always come from the subjects of it. The history of liberty is a history of limitations of governmental power, not the increase of it.

My quickly is fix/modifying a crappy cart. Anyone have one of these gas welding crappy carts knows the down side.

I started on it because, it has no clearance off the deck what moving it. So bad it cannot roll over an air hose.

In the process of removing the tanks, the balance is so screwed. The cart fell backwards to the floor, just missing a door on the 32truck.

Modes moved wheels 3'' aft, changing the pivot point. This increased the clearance, off the deck of the rear edge of tank platform. Larger wheels, mostly decorative.

Generally stiffened and welded any flex points.

Anyway here is the crappy cart before and after shots, painting it today.

The large wheels are a plus, nice fix!

Nice cat Pepi.

I haven't anything to add to the bike just yet but was told it was to be ready the next day and has been a week now or close to it... and only another thing I got today was they were jetting the carb because the one I put on was stock and would not feed enough fuel to run right... and haven't gotten to doing.. the brakes yet so I figured id add to the list of things since they have it anyway and have it gone over new headlight upgrade the turn signals a little bit taller sissy bar and new rear shocks the guy was not liking all the little shit so it sounded in his questioning and voice tone so I threw in the blinker fluid just to see how of an off day he was having and sure sounded like he wrote that down too so I assume that, as I got no silly response or laugh not even a response to that

So If I get the bill and get charged for blinker fluid well I guess they have a sense of humor after all or think I'm that stupid and would pay for blinker fluid...
