Alright Here's my new stem that I just finished making last night....

The reason I made this is because I bent my Lonestar Stem when I rolled over......The stem should not have bent since the quad rolled on top of me, and not the ground :re My frame held up perfectly, and so did the rest of the bike. Only thing that was damaged was the LSR stem. :disgust

another.....it's sort of like the RPM stem, but a hair different. It's constructed out of .120 wall 4130 Chromoly, and should NOT bend. :lol :lol :lol

NICE JOB!!!! Tig welding is the balls, Im looking at a few different tig units right now, I havent made my mind up on which one I want yet, but Hobart has a nice machine I like alot.

Did you machine the bottom splined section, or did you cut and weld??

Miller ....... nuff said

I use the [email protected] outta my SD180 sychrowave. It's not the most expensive machine Miller put's out but it does do about any of the chromo/alum work that I've needed it for. Real happy with the product. I do have a Miller mig as well, and am very pleased with it as well.

:lol

It's more function than form.......but in person it looks alot better than in those pictures. But if you want a pretty one, I guess I can make you one Identical to every other swingin' dick's out there, and paint it pink with some "Pretty" Yellow elephants on it 8|
