The bottom rail would come up and support the top rail, leaving a short deck behind with the rings to hold the seat still.


Edit: Oh. The six inch measurement between the holes is pretty useless. They're about 4" down and 4" across but that doesn't really matter.

I think the crossbar should be where the bottom rail meets the top but I'm afraid the stress from welding twice in the same spot on each top rail might weaken it way too much??? MIG is usually okay for that but this is my ass we're talkin about.


I'm consider taking the subframe to a fabricator who is good with a welder and having them cut it up and weld it back together in triangle form.

Don't worry about the welds. MIG is really localized and quick, so it has less heat applied around the weld generally. You won't hurt anything by welding this up. It'll be this too, so no probs. :)

Are you gonna use round, or square tube?

Round tube for the top rails (using the ones it has) and square for the bottom.

The hard part is gonna be the battery box... which I've never made before.

I thought you were "done" and wanted to get rid of your bike? Or did you sit down, take a deep breath, smoke a newport, down a 40 and come back to your senses?

haelo, if you need battery box suggestions im here for advice, If you have a welder, then you should have no issues making a box. measure out where your battery would be and have the welder make a box where you want it outta some thicker sheet metal or aluminum, whatever you have access to, and the welder can weld. I suggest going this route as he is already welding so it wont be that much more, and i know you dont like glassing stuff.

Yeah I'm gonna put the battery and ECU over the transmission and I'm The regulator on the bottom of the seat with a small sheetmetal air duct.
