I am planning on purchasing a mid 1930's motorcycle frame and modifying it to carriage a newer engine. Having minimal welding and fabrication skills mainly due to the lack of the more expensive tools, I figured I would check in here to see if any of the members would consider helping and assisting in my project. A couple friend and myself toured the space earlier this week and I was very impressed with the setup, individuals, and general vibe I got from the place. A couple of us are definitely planning on becoming members.
I recently built a bike last winter that developed several skills but didnt really require much fabrication. Most of the welding that was done was done by my neighbor while I sat back and observed.
I could of course send the project off to someone to have it professionally done but this is something I really want to learn to do and have the satisfactory feeling of knowing I did this myself.
Below is a link to a write done by an individual know as Irish Rich. This pretty much entirely details the project I would like to embark on. http://www.bikernet.com/pages/story_detail.aspx?id=1992
Any members out there interested is assisting or maybe discussing my project?

I look forward to becoming a member and plan on taking the welding class as soon as possible.
