Hi, everyone. I'm 65 and finally have a little time to do useless projects. I recently purchased plans to build a recumbent bike from the frames of 10 speed bikes. Here are the plans as listed on eBay:
I have no welding skills. However, brazing doesn't seem all that difficult-heat both parts to cherry red and apply brass and flux. I'm sure it's not that easy. Question one: Is it likely that I can teach myself to weld bike frames together so that the parts are in proper alignment and strong enought to carry the load?
Question two: Would I be able do the welding with a $30.00 work shop torch from Home Depot with Map Gas?
