Custom 1968 Triumph Chopper:
The frame needed LOTS of work:
Someone added a bolt-on hardtail, that was welded (not well) on to the original frame. It will take lots of welding and shaping to make this right. First, here are some parts for the frame that need to be powdercoated (not the fender, that will be painted):
Here's the frame, sandblasted at another shop, showing the work needed to make it safe and look good:
Here is some of the work that was done, so far. This is the third round of welding and cleaning. Every un-needed hole was welded shut, and there were many, not to mention the really bad looking welds in the pictures above that needed to be redone:
Minor touch-up welds were done to fill any pinholes as the frame is getting powdercoated and no filler is going to be used. The fender has been cut for chain clearance and sight glass mounts were welded to the tank. Body filler was used on the tank and fender to smooth them out before painting.
