About the Power MIG 210 MP
The Power MIG 210 MP is a multi-process welder for the hobbyist, maker, craftsman, educator or contractor who wants to perform MIG welding and a lot more, including DC stick, DC TIG and self-shield flux-cored wire welding.

Push-and-turn digital controls and a color display screen make setup and operation intuitive and easy, while the all-metal wire drive and sturdy sheet metal construction make the welder rugged and ready for any job in the home or small shop.

Weighing in at only 40 pounds, the Power MIG 210 MP can go anywhere – the yard, workshop or just about any other place where it’s needed. Likewise, the dual-input voltage options (120 and 230 volts) enable the user to plug it in practically anywhere. The welder produces 20-140 amps DC on 120 volt input and 20-220 amps on 230 volt input. That’s enough welding output for 3/8-inch-thick steel and stainless materials or 3/16-inch-thick aluminum. The integrated wire feeder handles 4- and 8-inch spools and can feed 50-500 inches per minute.

Lincoln Electric is the world leader in the design, development and manufacture of arc welding products, robotic arc welding systems, plasma and oxy-fuel cutting equipment and has a leading global position in the brazing and soldering alloys market. Headquartered in Cleveland, Ohio, Lincoln has 48 manufacturing locations, including operations and joint ventures in 19 countries and a worldwide network of distributors and sales offices covering more than 160 countries.

2016 Cleveland Winners: Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show

Last year Cleveland got a pounding and the Polar Vortex had just begun to extend its icy fingers down from the Great White North. This year the weather was a balmy 60 degrees and the vortex is remembered like yesterday’s news.


Lines snaked outside the entrance into the International Motorcycle Show at the IX Center in Cleveland. The quality of the custom builds were stellar this year. It’s unfortunate that there is only 1 winner in each of the four classes as there were so many deserving motorcycles.

Dell Battle won the Hot Bike Editor’s Award for his 1991 Sportster named 72 Style Sporty. Court House Custom won the Street Chopper Magazine Editor’s Choice award.

Jesse Srpan took the SHO DOG award and received a solo bag from The Leatherworks for his work representing his company at the International Motorcycle Show.
J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder FreeStyle Class

Whenever Jeremy Cupp from LC Fabrications rolls a bike into a competition, you know he will be standing someplace on the podium. Cupp entered his bike Seven into the open class that allows for any type of drive train and any 2 or 3 wheel motorcycle as defined by the DMV. The Grottoes, Virginia native took top honors and rolled out of Cleveland with a check for $2,000 and a champion anvil ring from Speakeasy Original. We will be seeing him in Chicago at the US Championship competing for King of the Builder and a $10,000 payday.

Cupp used a Ducati topend, a Buell Blast case and a Triumph gearbox to create his own custom mill. He fabricated the frame, oil, gas tank, rear fender and engine shield. He also fabricated just about everything else but the tires and spokes. The bike got its name “Seven” because Cupp said that it’s the seventh proper motorcycle to roll out of the LC Fabrications garage.

1 – # 250 – Jeremy Cupp, LC Fabrications – 2015 Custom named Seven
2 – # 775 – Wayne Burgess – 2010 Shovelhead named Spitball Magoo

J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder MOD Harley Class

The MOD Harley class requires Harley-Davidson engine cases and frame.  The neck may be cut to rake or stretch the frame.

The black and red paint on Dell Battle’s latest custom bike, 72 Style Sporty, really pops. The 1991 Sportster features tall billet wheels, custom exhaust, intake, custom tank, controls and swing arm. Air ride front and back allows the bike to look aggressive while at rest.

At the awards ceremony Dell jumped up on stage for his photo op and his $1,000 payday. Dell is heading to Chicago for the US Championship and the KING of the Builders award.

1 – # 925 – Dell Battle, Danerous Dezigns – 1991 Sportster named 72 Style Sporty
2 – # 150 – Demetrius Clarke, John Speed & Custom – 2007 Harley

J&P Cycles Ultimate Builder MOD Retro Class

MOD Retro is an open class for any build with a motorcycle based drive train1984 or older. It requires an OEM driveline with stock, modified or aftermarket frame.

Ed Kubiez worked with Jeese Basset at The GasBox to create an exceptional custom build of a 1965 BSA. The bike features 6” stretch and 4” lowered custom frame with Invader wheels and a rear perimeter brake system. Kustomtech handles the controls and a Hurst shift lever guides the shifting. Updates include a sectioned Superglide tank and late model dual carb heads.

1 – # 175 – Ed Kubiez, The GasBox – 1965 BSA

Day Trip to Cleveland IMS Show

Day Trip To Cleveland IMS Show

"The young lady has good taste"
“The young lady has good taste”

On Friday January 31st some friends and I made our yearly trek up to Cleveland, Ohio to checkout the annual Progressive International Motorcycle Show show at the I-X Center there. Compared to previous years and recent patterns here in the ’Rust Belt’, the weather was pretty decent for the trip. Meaning we had temperatures above freezing and it wasn’t snowing or sleeting. The only problem we encountered was staying to long inside Harley-Davidson Biketown in Austintown

"Old original Indians"
“Old original Indians”

before heading next door to the Quaker Steak and Lube for lunch. We arrived just after they finished up the Lunch Buffet which we had been looking forward to. Instead we had to settle (?) for a delicious burger. The Lubes may known for their wings but their burgers are awesome too.

We arrived at the I-X Center just after the doors opened at 4 PM. We like to get their early on the opening day so we can avoid the big crowds, but it looked like this year we weren’t the only ones thinking that way. After meeting up with my old friend Jeff Najar of Biker Pros, we went into the main show area and I headed straight to the J&P Ultimate Builder Custom Bike Show. There’s always some awesome machines entered into the UBCBS events and this was the case again this year.

After perusing the custom bikes I roamed around between the Indian, Harley and Victory displays. In each area I took the time to sit on and check out how the touring

“Was Rick Fairless in the house?”

models of each brand felt. Not that I’m in the market for a new bike, but the real reason was because I’m still recovering from a bout of pneumonia and needed to take a few rest breaks. What better place to take a break than on the seat of a brand new motorcycle, right? Especially after the weather we’ve had here in the Great Lakes region. A side bar to that is that I got to meet some really nice people that were manning the displays.

All too soon we were heading back towards our homes in Pennsylvania, after a brief stop at the King’s Restaurant in New Castle, PA for a slice of blackberry pie of course. Everyone had had a good time looking at all the new bikes and motorcycle products, I got to see my friend Jeff Najar again and my friend Roger finally broke down and bought a new helmet, a real helmet, not one of those plastic reproduction he had been wearing. It was a good day.

If you’d like to checkout a Progressive International Motorcycle Show you still have a couple chances left for this season. The next show is February 7 – 9th in Chicago, Illinois and then it’s on to Seattle, Washington on February 14 – 16th. BTW look for a future post coming soon from Jeff Najar with the results and lots of images from the Cleveland UBCBS show.
