7075, 7076... Whatever It Takes

Don't know if this was worth the effort, but was in a chatty mood. Come along for the ride as I sort out a few little things on a Factory Scorpa. We'll do bad things, I promise.



  • It's a scientifically proven fact that purple is more springy and durable than any other colour. Hence why it's the perfect colour for springs, coz it's not like you'd choose it because it looks good as it's also a scientifically proven fact that purple is the least cool colour for springs 😁

  • I could care less about your foot peg problems. The only reason I watched the whole video is because I'm totally enamored at how you present your subject. Its always some new ploy or diversion to draw ones focus that your really talented at. Your a very talented orator and producer. I'm curious where your going with AL-projects, and I suspect its going to be a blast watching you go there. You could do John Oliver's job, ( al-projects.info/it/video/pXuiboOeu5uefo4) and be so much better at it than he is.

  • How are the pegs holding up? I preface, you are much more connected to your brain than I am to mine. Anywho....if the pegs are hanging in there, you may add a thin brass or Teflon™ sleeve to extend the life of them where the slop now resides. Just an idea.

  • What you fail to worry about is the heat affected zone at the site of the weld. First, the heat treat is trashed at the pivot point, the point of the highest stress, and some of it is in tension. Second (and this is the dominant one in welding) the stress built up in the part resulting heating one point to melting, and the rest at room temperature. (In steel, heating by only 140F causes it to expand 0.1%, and if that is resisted, results in 25,00lb/sq in stress. That's how I hold the tires on my steam engine. Machine 0.1% undersize, heat ~300F, drop on, and allow to cool. Aluminum expands at double the rate of steel!) To do this right, you need to heat the part to ~700F, hold (to anneal out the stress), then cool to the 350F treatment temperature, hold for 24 hours, then air cool. In a week the part will be hard. Arc torches are so easy! Until you discover that to do it right, you need gas torch to do the anneal afterword.

  • So...he makes such a big deal out of welding the aluminum pegs but my question is why didn't you just weld a bead on the metal frame instead? There was plenty of room to get into it with a file to clean it up....

  • first of all... i'm no bike guy, in fact the "thrill" of operating a foolishly dangerous vehicle doesn't tickle my pickle even the slightest. perhaps i'm just intelligent. anyhow... considering the swiss cheesed material and the connection... I would assume that they're not intended for or at all necessary for mounting the bike and holding the entirety of your body weight. secondly, I would have cleaned up the contact surface of the pedal at the mill... maybe removed a bit more to thicken the spacer that I would have simply drilled, and countersunk two holes to mount to the pedal with using flat head screws... a spacer made of hardened tool steel because it only makes sense. the surface at which the pedals stop meets its stationary contact surface when engaged needs to meet at the correct angle and match perfectly with proper spacing and adequate CONTACT. thus having optimal stability because we're fully capable smart boys... we've won at life with the grand prize being no recognition or reward at all besides knowing we did it right, and we did a damn good job at it too.

  • Is there any reason that you wouldn't have merely welded, adhered or affixed a thin metal plate on the steel bike frame, instead of modifying the pedal? Although... the next time you changed the pedals... you'd need to shave material off of the pedal to play nice with the frame.
