Why did you made that last cut on the frame? Cool fast build, keep it going!

DH900sl

I am wondering this as well, I have seen it on a couple of builds here now ?
I am looking at a couple of 920's in Flawed duh next week and planning a similar build.

I have made the new flanges but waiting to finish them before posting.  I would have more progress but dealing with unfortunate tank restoration issue on my gpz.

Why did I cut the frame there? You will see.

Frame welds all reinforced and now blended. I also reinforced the shock mount in the frame. Between the two bikes. 6 hours of weld blending.

Cree headlights finally arrived. Sub frame all square an stage one built. In my first attempt at the sub frame i was 2mm off so I cut and redid the welding to make it 100% square.

Lots of action.

First new items from the mail!

Then test fitting the headlights.

Now the gas tank mount. There are actually two identical plates under the mount, the bolt is holding them center.

I will clean up the rest of it tomorrow on the sides of the mount/tank.

I am very picky about tank and seat lines so I cant handle when stuff isnt linear.

I would be a faster builder if I was picky about certain things. I lose a lot of hours on these kinds of things.

Anyways watch the magic happen. The end of the tank will be cleaned up with body filler so I didn't bother to clean the welds too much, but you get the idea.

Still more today.. wholeee shieeet. 8) ;D

Ok so this sub frame is a little different than my last so I had to re-enforce it differently. Plus the lower beam angle is less steep so another reason to re-enforce it.

I drilled a whole through both beams. slid solid rod through it. Welded the tops and bottoms, then hid the welds. I also from the back opening I also welded the rod to all the walls inside, then proceeded to fill the holes with solid welds. Then I I again hid the welds and made a nice transition.

Am I going to far with some of this work??? Do people appreciate that level of detail??.. I'm not sure anyone will ever see those cleaned up welds..lol. :-\
