You need to check out the other sub forums here, put your build thread in the right category, and you'll get people commenting and critiquing it, then you'll get some chit-chat going on. Expand your horizons, there's a lot going on, on RCC.

I'm down for gurus and Denver. I'd do K&K. But I don't want to come home with a bunch of their soft "hardware"
St. Louis g6 maybe?

i was having a tough time being motivated knowing i wanted to do something real clean and low cg but not really knowing what to do. it took a couple tries to bend the sides equal and just right, im real happy with how clean they ended up.

mike are you using electrical solder or the higher temp brazing solder? i have both standard mapp torch and the little 2 bottle mapp/o2 torch from homedepot. it takes a bit of work with either of those to get a joint (thats been cleaned and fluxed) to be too hot to flow the solder into.

ive only ever used harris safety silv 45 or 56, with the stay silv paste flux. heat joint till flux and joint turns shiney lava looking, apply rod and done.

thinking about cutting the rear out and mounting the spare like this, maybe on a swing out tire carrier with a bearing so the spare can spin.

I was going to ask the same, are you applying flux to both pieces to be joined, and it helps to fishmouth the end of the tube. The other thing I noticed about Mapp gas, is the silver will flow when the metal starts getting red, if you get it too hot, the silver will bead off.
