cb seven fifty rc42
« on: Apr 04, 2017, 05:24:53 »
So back in 2012 i started on my cb seven fifty rc42 café racer Build. Back then i chopped a whole bunch of the frame... A big mistake cos now im struggling with thé subframe. This is how she sits now.

Now i have absolutely no idea on where tot start...

This how i want things to look :

Any ideas? ( I don't have access to a pipe bender. Welding is not a problem)

You can buy pre-bent rear "hoops" based on the distance between your existing shock mounts. I would just weld straight tubing from the backbone to the rear hoop.

1+ to Brotus, I'd get the hoop so you can be sure you can align the laterals and hoop.  Also think about whether you want to stash electrics in a box between those rails and if so, make a cardboard mockup and think it through.  Cardboard is cheap.  But don't get "writer's block" - it's not like you've trashed this puppy, just get on 'er.  Spring is coming!
