    That's some interesting info Robbie, thanks. I like how they've listed how many different components per bike and the totals of materials used per year and so on.
    Although it's a little odd that the caption that describes "electric welding makes strong handlebars" shows a photo of workers doing gas welding or brazing instead of arc welding .

    Wonder what year as too the electric weld as mentioned. Looks like late 20's early 30's?
    Len, I believe H-D handlebars of the J, and V series were resistance welded. I had a conversation with Tom Faber about that vintage of handlebars. Those bars are the most mysterious engineering marvel I have seen on any Harley-Davidson. They start out as a flat stamping and somehow were formed then resistance welded. I only know that because I had a set that had been cut up and you could see the weld seam on the inside, but not a single flaw or inclusion on the outside.
