    The frame was too stuffed to straighten so I decided to chop all the bent bits off.

    Fuck! not much left, should I rebuild or buy another frame?
    Well I'd never built a frame before and this one was nearly half done, so I bought some chrome moly, made a pipe bender from scrap I had around the house, studied up on frame geometry and got started.
    Used a sheet of 12mm thick steel for a base, made up a few jigs (sorry, forgot to take pics) my lathe was too small so I got the local engineering shop to turn up the head stock then started bending cutting and welding,

    Thanks for the comments guys, but the proof's in the pudding, I'll be happy if it doesn't spit me off in a big tank slapper.
    Here's a few more pics of what else is going on the bike.
    Shimmed the new disks to line up with the callipers, the rim is off a SV650 and the forks are ZZR1200 so a fair bit of spacing to do there, the speedo drive is off a 86 gsxr1100.

    The same deal with the swing arm with shimming, which is off an 01 GXSR600, the back wheel is Bandit 1200 as is the calliper hanger and drag link.

    stop it mark I will need to clean up soon........real bike building imo
    what probs with rego do you think you will have
    and what filler wire did you use for the 4130 ?
    Really good use of lesser used better value later model factory parts, while still keeping the clasicc vibe I love it.......

    Ozzy,I bought the cromoly off RaceTec and used the rods theyrecommended, it has ER 70S-2 stamped on the ends.
    And no more questions about rego, I don't want to dampen my enthusiasm.

    that pain I feel only to well my brother......
    er 70s-2 is the spec that keeps comeing up with the people in the know that I have spoken to
    racetec is where i was thinking of useing but there is a few other places its stocked well
    I just shouted myself a jd2 square bender model 32 for this propose, paid for it with scrap money and designing a paying job that uses 3/4 s/s tube bent- by luck should have it the stars alined and with just my time and some small cash the $1500 paid for its self.
    what did you use to bend it, it can take no small amount of force :-)

    (jd2 square bender model 32) Yeh, I wish I had one of them, I made up a very basic bender and yes it was very hard to bend, so hard in fact, reluctantly, I needed to heat it and then let it cool slowly.
    Albi, Yeh, but on the jig it lined up well, hard to tell from a photo.

    im just starting in this but by the look of it the section you prob had to heat is trianglelated by the stright bar anyway, at the end of the day 4130 has got to be over x2 the strengh of the mild it replaced so while its not what Id do there is never really much chance that its going to be a problem. I have plans afoot to build the frame jig to end all jigs, problem is that its going to cost upwards of 1k and take me 3 mths to build it and thats if the place sells me their old milling machine bed they have........
    thats not a easy task you took on there and if it was me id be chuffed with the result


    as you can tell I kind of love that paint
    I am very proud of my race....the fucking human race...........
