    Wtb pair of lightning S seat rails and tail housing

    I'm in need of a pair of seat rails (rear subframe) and the tail (the aluminum tail light housing and plate bracket holder). Chopped or unchopped doesnt matter, and a taillight. Cosmetics dont matter much as I can easily paint them, price is more important. PM me if you've got anything. Thanks!

    This threads from last year but thanks for the offer, Cooter! Dont even have that bike no more.

    As to the welding I used a Miller 350p pulse MIG welder the same thing to use to repair Ford pickups in the body shop I work at

    Thats funny, I responded thinking it was recent, hee hee Thats a big Miller! I've had a MillerMatic 250 for at least 20 years. The start circuit is a little rough so it's not the best choice for small stuff but she will burn beautiful beads on trailer hitches and roll cages

    Yeah, it's a pretty stout welder. It seems backwards, I know, but you actually need a lot more amperage to weld aluminum than steel.
