Hi guys

Yes, I have used a tig welder for the main structure on this frame. It is the welder in the background in one of the photos, ESAB power tig 160. I am not sure if I want to do the whole frame with the tig, takes to much time.

This week I did some tests in the lathe, making threads for my own designed coilovers. I want to use an aluminium pipe and fit an insert shock from a car inside. Bought a 60x5 mm pipe from my local dealer. This measures 0,5 mm more so I can use the lathe and do a small cut before I make the threads.

Only problem is the internal threading in each end, since I don't have a steady rest for my lathe and spindle bore is 46mm.

One out of four is finish. Hope it will be strong enough. Great way to learn screw cutting in the lathe but take a lot of time.
I used M52x2 on the internal threading, might be a good idea to use 1,5 or 1,25 to save some of the wall thickness in the pipe.

They Look great Aschjem! How did you end up cutting the internal threads without a steady rest?

Also, If you wanted to make a steady rest, here's a great video series on youtube that tells you how. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xoVeVUzD ... _S8EPDDGq5
It would have been extremely dangerous... except for the fact he was drinking at the same time.

Great video! Looks quite easy, but I think this man got more than basic skills in how to make tools.

I had some spare parts that came with the lathe, so here I found a steady rest, lunette or what they call it. Not in the best shape and some parts where missing but with some work it turns out quite good. I have to modify the foot cause it is not made for this lathe but I think it is possible. I changed the pads inside from fixed to roller bearings.

Long time since last post in this forum. Got a rolling chassis now, after more than 3 years of work.
Engine is wired up but not running yet. When i switch ignition on there is a "Check" message in the display. Any idea why? I try to find info in gixxer forums but dont know really. Sidestand switch, tip over sensor, no communication with instrument etc. Engine is turning when i hit the start button. Fuel tank is not complete so I just tried with fuel pump connected. It is not running.
