building a motorcycle lift. id like to have it powder coated as shown, but it looks like im going to run into issues installing the front set of legs. ( the ones without the tracks) i know i could shorten the pipe and have it where it slides in deeps then kinda like " splits the difference" between the two bushings. buts im not sure if i wanna trust .75 inch on each side holding up big road cruisers. (though its solid 2 inch so its probably strong enough) wouldn't worry if it was just my sport bike, but i work on everything. so i could leave one of the long sides off, have it all powder coated, then assemble and weld up the fourth side, but then ill have to grind powder off. and i dont wanna pay 100 dollars and spend two hours taping up to re-coat a couple welds, not to mention i probably wont be able to weld much between the cross member and the bushing. sooo, any one have any ideas?? or do u think that splitting the difference will be ok??
