I don't do cut and paste, don't know how too. Video IMG5683 2 of Norvin, first start in 15 years on youtube. Let me know what you think and don't be too harsh. Les.
Maybe someone smarter than me could upload the video. Thanks again.

Looks Good to me Les, When was that ?, Any more news on it.
Cheers Bill.
Bill that was taken about 4 days ago. A few more things to be done before its first test ride. Sorting out clutch cover. Smoke is from paint burning off the pipes. Front guard needs to be mounted plus a few more little things

Bruce lots of mandrel bends cut & welded. Volume of both pipes within 1/2 an egg cup of water when filled. Pure fluke. Made all foot pegs, brake & gear levers,oil tank, engine mounts & gearbox & starter motor mounts. No more welding because i've i been fitted with a pacemaker. Chris that is a oil sight glass. Will get another video of complete bike after first test ride. Thanks for your interest. Les.

Just as an aside, and I am sure your doc knows better than me, but my neighbour had a pacemaker fitted several years ago and he asked about welding and was told that the new ones were good to go. Not to be a smart arse but did you ask the doc or just presumed? I'd be lost without my welder.........

May I ask what paint you used on the pipes? When you say the smoke is from the paint, it it actually burning off or just baking? I’m wondering about painting a pipe and not sure what to use.
Nice work you do there.

My pacemaker is two years old and they said no electric welding.

Robert some say yes & some no. I was using a inverter welder but do you take the risk ???

It's just a high temp heat proof exhaust paint. Was going to wrap them in exhaust tape but was told by exhaust professional tape after a while can harden pipes & they can crack. May get them ceramic coated

Just ask the doc for the make and model and then ask the manufacturer.

Neighbour was putting Chev LS engines into anything and everything from a 35 Chev coupe to a 48 Caddie convertible to Camaros, Chevelles and mid 80's chev van delivery trucks. was always making brackets, welding pipes and frames with zero issues.
