SUP fellas?? been riding bikes since 14/15 , I'll be 45 next week, so 30 years on two wheels, I always had sportbikes everything from a 600 to a ZX14R etc...20+ bikes and counting, anyway....as I get older my need for speed is gone so I purchased a Honda NC700X DCT that I ride 2 ou 3 times a week to and from work, and now I just purchased a 01 VLX600 and Im cutting the shit out of this bitch...my goal is to build me a nice custom/bobber bike to play with it....wish me luck...

on a side note I never held a welder in my hands before lol, I'm pretty good with tools and I wrench on my own shit all the time, I dont have room or $ for a lincoln or miller welder etc...I only need something to weld some tabs for my rear fender and maybe a plate for the new seat pan etc...would a harbor freight welder do the job??? stick or wire flux??? I can get the 90amp flux for 100.00 or the 80amp DC inverter stick for 130.00

Search Craigslist, You can sometimes pick up a cheap miller MIG for 100-150 used. You'll certainly get your money's worth out of it.

You can get a used welder but your electric service in the garage might have to be changed
I used the harbor freight flux core welder for tabs and it was fine
