I like to think that if I had a wheel, planisher, beader, tig..etc that I could do the same. But in reality I'd suck, you need years of practice to do work like that and doing one or two bikes a year isn't going to get me there.

I'm a low carbon steel kind of guy, I don't have any experience with welding aluminum and only little with ss. Can someone tell me what filler rod JJ is using to gas weld this tank?

He makes it look so easy I may just attempt making some tanks....
