I wanted to find a way to give the new swingarm more support rather than just the original mounting point off the back of the engine since the RC51 swingarm is much beefier and I will be running a 190 tire on it. I devised some mounts out of wood for mock up that utilize the stock peg mounts and support the outside of the swingarm. I used the original frame mount and made a center piece to locate the swingarm closer to the countershaft sprocket and give it a better alignment for the pivot point. I also raised the engine for a better swingarm angle. The new mock up pieces will serve several functions (1) Swingarm support (2) top shock mount (3) sub-frame mount (4) foot peg mount, and (5) Counter shaft outer bearing support. It took some time to get it all sorted but it looks like it should work really well. I will have these pieces made out of aluminum on a CNC.

Pretty good looking build so far. As to your new brackets, you could have them cut with water jet for a fraction of the cost of CNC mill and then hand finish them yourself. I have done a ton of parts that way and its substantially cheaper.

Damn this is going to be cool. Love all the custom frames popping up lately. Gives me something to aspire to.

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?
