Coffin on a motasickle

Dad died late last year and as he had ridden his bikes almost daily since he was sixteen we figured it would be good to send him off on his WLA outfit. We bought a basic coffin, painted it pretty sky blue then covered it with photographs depicting his life... He owned almost every brand from Exelsio...

Jap frames in the 70's were nothing to write home about, mild steel and pretty thin. I've done what you suggest and seen others as well. Use same diameter and wall size tube and weld right around with plenty of penetration and you'll be fine. If you want to play safe put in a 1½"gusset at front and ...

002 Forward Controls... under seat frame mods (pictures)
