Husqvarna 701 Enduro
« on: February 03, 2019, 02:20:09 PM »
I have a Husqvarna 701 endure and am doing some modifications and thought I would try and document some of them.

First project is a GPS mount, I ended up with a few different ideas and did a couple prototypes on the 3d printing

I am trying to teach myself how to TIG weld so thought this would be a good project to get some practice. These are the individual details

Very nice. The mount looks professional.
Nice bike too. Very colourful with the anodized aluminum.

When I first saw this I was wandering what it was all I knew Husqvarna made was lawn/garden and chain saws etc.   Nice looking bike.  and nice attachment you made.
TIG welds look better than any welds I could do.

Husqavarna has been making motorcycles since 1903  ;D The paint made the welds look better than they were! Just when I think I'm getting the hang of it everything goes bad  ;D  There are some good beginner youtube videos that have helped me allot.

All "welders" started out as "grinders".
Some just got tired of grinding!

I practiced on some of the excess stock and was making some decent welds but as soon as I started welding the real material I choked up  ;D ;D ;D

you just have to do it more and more often.   
More projects. 
 At one time I was a decent welder on an old 6cyl Lincoln welder.   Last time I made something I used more grinding disk than anything else.
I need more practice.  or buy stock in grinder disks.
