ok folks. I bought the welder. I went out and got a esab torch. I got everything to make something to help us. well its almost done. we have made a complete set already. just to find out that there was only a 1/8th in of clearance on the front fork. so that wasn’t good enough. We threw that one away and are making another one. IT WILL BE DONE BY TONIGHT! WITH PICKS!!!!! However after it is all said and done I have been trying to figure out a price on these things... it takes about 2 1/2 hours to make and a good bit of waste material. so my thought is a shop rate is $65 an hour that makes about $175 {about} so with materials its about $200.... so what’s a "good" price.... I think I would be happy with $120 shipped anywhere in the lower 48 to your doorstep. EASY to install. Bitch to make. Post up or pm me if your interested.
