Just pulled this one out of the jig.

Here are some pictures of a frame I just finished.
The neck and axle plates are CNC machined but the rest of the parts I made by hand.

I make the rear tranny mount tubular because I like how it looks (even though it is a lot of work and just gets buried when the bike is finished).

I also extend the country bar to the top motor mount so the back bone is stronger. This frame doesn't have a top motor mount yet-it will be attached once the motor is in place.

The hardest part of making a frame is getting the bends just right
so everything is square in every direction.

Everytime I make a frame I want to keep it but I have to let it go. I've already made three frames that were supposed to be mine but they all seem to get sold because I always need the money. I have a frame now that I made for myself-it's just an empty shell rigid-I'm still trying to decide on what will power it.

Looks to be of high quality.

I noticed there is no 5th hole mount for the trans. Do you not use one, or do you weld it on during mock-up???

now that im looking at it closer, i can see a trans plate must be used

Yes, it still needs a fifth mount. It's better to weld it on during mock-up.
