The fine folks from the Chicago menswear store Apartment Number 9 stopped by during the building of Kara's Yamaha SR250 to talk shop and shoot some of the process. Here's a little short film they put together, featured in their newest bulletin.
Sorry to hear about your BMW, i've had a car project stolen from me once and it killed me. Those ride shots of you are money. and "you rascal you" in the background is awesome. great video.
Hey David, nice build! I noticed in the video it looks like you are grinding your tungsten rod horizontally. If you chuck it in a cordless drill you can spin it and hold it vertically to the stone. Your arc will wander less giving you tighter control over the tig. Just a tip I picked up over the years. I enjoy your pics on instagram, keep up the good work!Best Tony
Haha I was hoping no one noticed that. I usually grind it vertically. Not sure what I was doing there...
MUCCI! Very nice. -Toast
Hi Dave, What size are the tyres? and did you go with tubes or tubeless?? Love the build! Thanks, Jon
