Hey all,

I haven't been riding for quite some time now because of my broken frame. It is cracked right along the "Y" juction where oil flows, and I have taken it to 3 welders, and none of them will touch it. So, now that the weather is nice, I'd like to get back to riding. My only option is to buy a new frame, and the dealer wants mega $$$ for one, does anyone know of anybody selling a frame?

Just a thought here....why couldn't you buy the dry sump conversion from Dr D and then you could tell the welder, he can take it apart and rebuild/re-enforce the area.

Try to find someone in your area that works on sprint car frame or race cars.

Enclosed is a item that I bid on on Ebay. It is a complete frame. It went for $242. Perhaps you can wheel and deal with the winner that is listed. I have seen a few frames on Ebay, so you may want to monitor it. If you can get a frame for close to the same cost as a dry sump kit, I would opt for the frame!
