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.

Doing some more work on the frame. I made the mounts that goes from the heads to the frame and finished most of the welding. Still going to add a couple more supports, but now I should be able to make it a roller pretty soon.

Really like how you scratch built the back bone and neck on this bike, very nice work!
The question isn't who is going to let me, it's who is going to stop me.
You can't reason with the unreasonable.
Too dumb to quit.

Not planning on connecting the rear frame and the top frame together?
I don't think it's a whore shot until you start posting pics of it on other people's build threads.
So it's all good.   8)

are you going to bore the headstock bearing cups post weld? I have been thinking about making my own swing-arm lately and one of the issues I've been scheming on is how to fixture the swing-arm to bore the bearing cups after welding to eliminate distortion. nice work.

I took some precautious when welding around the headstock. First of all I left the bearing outer race in the headstock to help keep the shape. I also used welding gel on the race to help dissipate the heat. I doubt that I will need to machine it.

I am planning on connecting the top of the frame at the back of it to a point on my CNC parts, but I am going to wait until I get the tail section and exhaust figured out first so my mount won't interfere.

I was able to make it a roller. I put the 08 CBR600rr forks back on the new frame but ended up using a CBR929 Triple clamp to get the correct brake caliper spacing for the RC51 SP2 wheel. The disks are 08 CBR600RR. The rear RC51 SP2 wheel was of course a direct bolt on to the RC51 swingarm. Hopefully this will keep me more motivated.
The next step is to figure out my tank and tail section I have several ideas just need to decide.
