Okay, I finally have the 919 frame chopped and re-welded together. It was a pretty big leap of faith cutting up two perfectly good 919 frames!

The original problem:



I figured that by dropping the swingarm pivot by 1.25", the line between the rear axle and the countershaft would be just about perfect under static sag. So, apart came the frames!











I'm making good progress now. I need to get some additional pictures of the completed frame. Next step, I'm having the swingarm extended 3". That will give me a nice, long wheelbase for my extra large build!
