Why ? Keep arm & hands in when crashing.

I help build and ride a "Trandem". We took three bike frames, cut them up and welded them back together to make a 3 person bike. We rode it up and down the street a few times for fun.

I liked TIG welding. Learned a bit fixing copper-tungsten ECM tooling, and played around with aluminum bike bits for fun.
I like the control with TIG.
Never tried much stick or wire feed.
