More photos of a bike that came in with ,how can I say poor fabrication is an understatement ,we will not touch anything that comes in like this ,even the side rails are out like a dogs hind leg ,I hope whoever has done this as not touched anyone else's frame they would need to get it checked out ,down right dangerous,welding is absolutely appalling as is the rest of it.

Another piece of poor fabrication ,this is on a frame that came in which we will not touch as its very poor and liable to snap, a new frame is currently being built by us ,photo shows just how far out this swingarm is and completely twisted,also been cut to get the bends in box section which you don't do and even then it's out, even small jobs like this need to have a jig set up to ensure everything is spot on
First three photos of how to cope a frame properly and last to of how not to , if you do this to someone's bike your seriously putting lives at risk ,if your not adept in fabrication and welding please take your bike to someone who is
Bottom engine mounts finished for the beast,done properly with frame insert bosses,the minor details just as important as the bigger details ,
Engine mounts done properly by us ,second pic shows mounts done by a cowboy builder ,these people shouldn't be going near people's bikes
Hidden axle blocks for the Gsx750 beast
Before and after by Retro Customs SR500 Brat
So this mornings job was to start a new frame for the Gsx750 Beast, as the frame that was suppose to be built for it before is scrap, poor welding and badly put together by someone else, frame rails all bent up ,axles and headstock next ,rear rails to size up,then it's in the jig to weld up
And so ,the next one starts ,Frame for Gsx750 Beast
Last shot of the SR500 Brat, full nut and bolt restro with rear subframe fabrication ,finished and she's off tomorrow Retro Customs
So ,later in the week we will be starting the gsx750,as this frame is totally beyond salvage and very poorly made to say the least,accident waiting to happen,poor fabrication ,poor welding,poor joining of tubing,frame out by 2 inches ,rails not in line ,its going in the bin, ,so its a new frame and done properly đź‘Ť
