Finishing Up the Bow Ti!

It really is fun to finish up a complicated build like this. Both John Castellano and I continue to learn new things as we go through the build process. Like I said in an earlier post, the learning never stops!

The Bow Ti will now go over to John's for the final testing and documenting of the bikes mechanical properties, and the final details before shipping.

Another Weld Detail !

Working everyday to to try to have some control over the welder, it is an everyday challenge to strive to master the art of welding titanium! Always something to learn. I think the person that that says he has mastered something might have something to learn. Every weld I make I examine and am always looking at ways to make it better! Well, I guess with all of that said, I will never master the art of welding, but hopefully come really close before my days are done !
