Luis,

Very nice work on both bikes ! You think about the details and I like that.

So for the metal box, after bending you put everything together with screws, right ? You don't weld them together ?

I'm asking because I'm looking to build a box for my frame, but not in the middle but covering the whole frame, it will look like the Stealth.

Hello guys,

soulaiman, thanks. Glad you like.
Yes, only screws. No weld.
But, if you now, how to weld...its another story. And a build like you want, You must have weld involved.

Hi Luis, you have done a great job without welding. Good to see that version two is coming along. Most tasks are much faster the second time, I'm enjoying all the photos. Look forward to hearing about the riding experience.

I would say your photos have too higher pixels. If you want the image to post full size, keep the pixel count at 800 x 600 or lower.
