Ya that would be a disaster but with the little knowlage I have and places like this I can get things dfone the right way.

So did you insert an internal slug "pig" for the swingarm welds? I didnt pick up what happened there (how you restored structural integrity) bike looks creative and innovative, happy to have found the thread.

hi mate, I'm loving this build so far but just wanted to point something out; where I've marked with a red line is a bending moment where the frame could fail, the green line is around about where you may want to weld in a gusset just to reduce the chance of ending up with your grapes squished on the rear tire. In saying this I don't know what else you're doing to the rear end, just wanted to make sure you were making it safe as possible.

I don't know if it makes a difference but I put a pig in there about 2 inches on each side of the cut . Thanks

Did you photo that part? I'd like to see for my own knowledge. What did you use for the "pig"
