Any time custom turns to mass production, something turns to crap. Usually quality.

Kind of looks like a Monday welding job! Not pretty!!
Monday, or after a liquid lunch, or a Friday.

Agreed.
Looks like the quality control people were out to lunch when that one came down the line.
And who ever did the chroming sure was`t paying attention either. But what do they care. Was`t for their bike and not their job.
Wonder how many more are like that out on the road.

I'm not going to claim I am a professional welder or anything but I could have welded that better!!! That is far from safe and if I owned that bike I would not ride it until it was properly fixed.

Even if it was a perfect weld, it doesn't look to me like it would be strong enough especially if it is a rigid frame. Even bicycles reinforce the neck.

I remember an episode of some TV show featuring JJ wherein he stated that he was basically a welder. I guess he wasn't/isn't.

Could be one of his employee's, and not JJ that did that weld.

That neck looks like one of his necks, but compare the welds in the OP to the welds in this pic..... not even close.
