    Not as many as they used to. I didn't see A&P in their latest catalog, just basic automotive collision and repair. Either way if he is in NYC he's going to have to go to long island for the classes.

    Too wide.I think the best cafe bike would split lanes and serve drinks and snacks during rush hour on the 101 in and out of San Francisco

    There are a bunch of people doing that with the Ape (Piaggio - see below). I wanted to bring back an old Ercolino (Moto Guzzi). Of all the things I passed on over there, my biggest regret is probably the Ercolino with tank treads. That thing was awesome and it was only a couple of grand. Of course, they would have busted my balls about shipping it. I am sure it was one of those free bikes are the most expensive kind of deals, but it was super cool. They had been using it in a vineyard and then just left it outside for a decade or two. Haven't seen one since.

    you disassmbled a motorcycle? meh.



    Weird that it's not "cool" to call them cafe racers on caferacer.net, but ok. Noted.
    You didn't call them "cafe racers" you called them "cafe'" which is why we are making fun of you. Just call them motorcycles.


    I'm 27, so BOCES isn't really an option. I'm not in a situation where I could quit my job and put myself back through school, so I'll need to take classes at night or on weekends, one at a time most likely, all which puts me at a disadvantage.
    Start looking at technical schools. There is someplace called "welding fantasy camp" which I think gives like $100 day courses but that's just enough info to get you in trouble. Real welding coruses where you end up a certified welder are going to be a couple grand.

    Who say's I was bragging about this? Just a point of reference of something I've done minor work on.

    As much as I appreciate you correcting me, I'm gonna call them whatever I want. I don't care if people "make fun" of me about it, as long as I get the info I'm looking for. If everyone wants to act all high and mighty about what you're supposed to call them just to troll me, that's fine. But everyone knows what I meant so what does it matter?

    I've seen those classes. They have a intro and more "advanced" classes but they're really isn't much fabrication involved and I don't think i'd be comfortable welding a load bearing structure together by the end of it. It's looking like technical welding courses for me.

    Thanks again.

    Some day in the future, if you continue down this road with motorcycles, you are going to stumble on your original post and you are going to finally realize how unintentionally hilarious it is, and suddenly all the subsequent jokes here will be very funny. Until then...try your best to not be humorless and take this too seriously, mmmmkay?
