Step 1: Bolt engine into the jig. 
Step 2: bend tubes to fit around motor
Step 3: weld in the jig

Did I mention getting a simple frame jig?  ;-)

If you were closer to Chicago, I'd lend you mine for a couple of weeks.

For a 160 it's not so important but for a fast bike with high stress cornering, maybe a jig's a good idea.  Where are you located BTW?

I'd say there's a 85% I use the 750 motor, the 15% is in case I get lazy. Im in NY, specifically long island.

THat's a bit far to drop in to borrow a jig.  Maybe there's a new frame jig in your future. Mine is from Chop Source plus a few lengths of 2x2 and a few other sizes for feet etc. They are a simple basically 2 dimensional jig, but adequate for simple frames or modifications.  The hard part is keeping the frame from wondering off to one side or the other, so take your time with that.

If you have a steel fabrication table you can always just use some cones and some all thread. That's what I do anyways.

For anything that needs precision, a proper flat table is a must though. I've seen race cars built on tables that were +/- .0025" over 12 feet, it's the right way to do it.
