    there's money to be made here. yes, you need a lathe. You could put together a kit that includes the insert, bearing cups, and directions where to cut. After that just collect your 100 dollar bills.

    Wow this is a great thread, I am considering changing the front end on this bobber I just bought, but not decided for what yet, the question I have now is what did you use to cut the lock off the headstock, I'm guessing it was the same disc that features in the other posts which is cool, but what did you use to then restore the surface profile, reason being some buffoon that previously owned my bike has welded side panels onto the frame (badly) which need cutting off (pic attached) but then I need to remove the remaining weld and stuff from the frame, just not sure what to use, advice would be gratefully received, btw I am very new to this modding game, but plenty of experience with bikes.

    Cheers

    I cut my lock off with a cut off wheel. Then just welded up the hole and ground it smooth.

    A flap disc does a much nicer job than a grinding rock and moves plenty of metal.

    Oh yeah I barely ever use a hard grinder unless I have to remove a lot of material is a short amount of time.

    This outfit is mentioned often on the welding forums I frequent. I've not bought from them yet since my local Airgas take exceptional care of me but it may help someone especially bulk buyers with shops:

    Flap discs spoil me and for my personal use I barely break out grinding rocks unless it's on the 9" and I've lots of metal to move.
