Back to it. Finally found some time to get back to this build. I designed my parts in a cad program and had my CNC guy cut them out for me. I finished the rear mount that supports the swing arm and is also the mount for the rear suspension. The CNC parts fit great and should add a lot of strength to the rear end.

Looking great! Don't let it fade into obscurity - this looks like a good one that I would like to see finished.

I'm definitely in on this one.

The custom work is very impressive! Can't wait to see the end result.

My question is, will there be room for the rear exhaust pipe?

The exhaust will be  a bit of a challenge but there is room for it. The RC51 swing arm I am using has the shock offset to the right and there is a space beside it where the stock RC pipe came through. So I will be able to come through it to do my exhaust.

Frame is almost done. I used box tubing to make the main part of the frame and welded it to the stock head stay. I designed and had two support plates cut out to box it in. The plates will attach to a custom bracket mounted to the head similar to stock. I had my frame come down closer to the head for more support. I also will be securing it with 3 bolts instead of 2 like the original. I did move the steering head stay closer, lower ,and at a more aggressive angle than stock for improved handling. Need to finish up the welding and make my mounts to the engine and she'll be a roller.
