After completing all the welding on the frame it was time for the silver-soldering. Our intention was to make the rear axle plates look like castings and to have them match the other castings on the frame which are also silver-soldered

 
 

The joints look a "bit" messy now but I promise they will look great after cleaning up. Next job was to make sure the frame was still straight after all the heat that had gone into it from all the welding.

 
 
 

Using the table as a jig we measured the frame; we fixed the neck exactly normal to the table and using a long iron bar in the axle slots we measured a slight difference left and right. We were able to correct this by modifying the axle slots, no big deal. Now we can clean up the axle plates and finish the sissybar and fender.
