Decided 30 years ago I was going to build my own frame.... unless immortality kicks in soon I better get my finger out

A friend was selling this for a good price



so after a long day of driving



So now that the Bandikat is put to bed I reckon the time is now





this will be a long term thang, to be honest the full frame thing is a little daunting,

in for a penny tho

the CB13 frame is sitting in the shed waiting for Nov 1st, game plan is to get rid of everyone else's jobs by then, tear into the fab of the 13, then as soon as it's out the door get the 1000 frame in the jig

Huge thanks to Callum, no way, with the best will in the world, I'd ever have managed that by myself





A barrel load of work before the frame comes off, but it's on the jig

I dug through the box of things that might come in useful today, found a thing to help make an adjustable support, just needed to turn an insert for it. Figured it better than a block of wood



unfortunately, even after chopping it down I couldn't get the frame at 23.5', the sump plug ended up touching

so I dismantled the swingarm jig and managed to get the spindle through the frame



the adjustable support can hold it while i make inserts to reduce the frame down to 20mm, centering the spindle properly



once that's done the front can be raised to the proper angle , something to pivot on
