Introduction: Nuts and Bolts Chopper

   I saw a chopper made out of nuts and bolts for sale and I thought "I could do that".  I have plenty of parts to choose from so I gave it a shot.  The only trouble I had was welding the different metals together. It was tough to get the heat right so I wouldn't  melt the soft metal and be sure to stick to the harder metal.  It took about an hour to build partly due to picking the parts I thought would work.
  My welding skills are terrible and I was able to attach all the pieces,  so it isn't very difficult. Give it a shot!

Love these kind of things, reminds me of an old bolt and bits man i made one night when was younger and bored, unfortunately it was lost in the move to America. But maybe i will have another go at making some bits one day, for now added to favs. These bikes are super cool you should make a load of the and sell them on ebay or at craft markets.

No I have a cheap Harbor Freight mig welder.
