Thread: Custom frame?

    That kind of thing is already available. I get the idea that this would use all the stock stuff and or its replacement. In my case the JMC swingarm, Penske shock, underseat exhaust setup, Carbon wrapped and painted tank, there's no way I'd ditch all that just to use a different frame. Hell may as well just go buy a different bike. This was my point when I brought it up with Art Davis, and that is a lighter, stiffer, stronger and generally much better made bolt in replacement. Something where you don't have to worry about the integrity of that shitty cast alloy stuff they use around the head stock.

    Besides I like the TLS rear suspension idea, having different rates for spring and damper, its just a pity they put a weak as piss spring in it and a shithouse damper in it. TLS suspension upgrades are very competitive with upgrades on other bikes anyway.

    Like I say..........using all stock equipment except just the frame. What Terry does is beyond tirck/custom Art's bike is the shizzit--PLAIN & SIMPLE.


    I'm just throwing around the idea of building frames--the TL/SV being first priority--then maybe an ATV or Two. People buy alot of mods/parts, if they go the TS/Art route those parts are expendable somewhat. I'm thinking frames are next.........



    Liablility is also a GREAT concern for me...like rupe states--I want everything to work perfect, perform up to & beyond stock. If I were to buy a frame--I would expect it to be 110% perfect.

    Like this?? Chrome-moly trellis frame with billet aluminum swing arm pivots. All TLS stock parts fit, except for the rear shock/damper thingy.



    Ciao... JoE.

    I'd be willing to pay a good amount if you showed me it was stronger, lighter, and more durable than the stock frame. Lighter being very key.

    The UNO frame is absolutely fantastic
    But we have to be fair and say it's really very very expensive.
