Thanks again George for the update. Now I see why you told me to leave the rails all the way to the back and just cut them out!

One more...on locking collars....steel or aluminum? Thanks!

George,

What kind of tool are you using to cut the frame where the axel goes in?

  Sir George,
   Dropping back to your wire feed welder.  Your machine looks like a 110 volt.   Besides the splatter, any problems or hints to pass along?  I have something similar and I am just getting used to it

YUP Its 110 and best advice I can give is practice on some old metal. Flux core like to be used HOT!!! And it isn't the best to weld thin stuff with. Until you know its capablilities and yours and be sure the surfaces are clean. One thing about flux core, is it will weld thru dirty or painted surfaces if you are decent with it. Some sitiuations on these things you don't have any choice too cramped top get er clean. But in the 7 years I been using it, I have never had a weld from this machine let go on any thing. I cannot say that about the high dollar gas welder I use at work. Again It took me a bit of time to learn it though. Penetration and settings  is much different than flux core welding. Gas is real clean and pretty but that don't make it a good weld. Hope I havn't confusewd you.

Then you slip the plate bushing into the the hole which self aligns on the input shaft.

does this bushing come with the plate, or is it extra?

also,
Doesent the plate come in two differnt ways? one with a chain tightner or somthing like that??

Here you can see I have rebolted the running/foot boards on and I will show you how I open the center-remove the bar yet maintain support for the boards.



First thing I do is tack weld the rod to the frame on the inside of the frame itself. Once both sides are tacked in place I cut the center out.



Here you can see the cut and fully welded remaining bit of rod. Much more to come so stay tuned.
I have gotten the axle in fender hieght and seat mount done. Rear brakes done Frame notched for the sprocket, tranny pully belt guides and clutch mounted. All yesterday evening. Gonna service the other BP today gonna head up to a race in VA next weekend. So I'll get er ready today, do a bit more on the build up then post more pics this evening.
