Project Gixxer - Part V

Well it appears the rear subframe from the GSXR750 [99] comes in two sections, the front and rear. I've managed to pick up a complete unit recently and am just waiting for this to come in, thats the good news. The bad news is that I can't find anyone to weld it for me, everyone I approach is saying no because it's old aluminium so is harder to weld!

Oh well I will check the fit when it arrives and devise some other method of fitment if I can't find a welder. I did look at a TIG course and considered buying a welder until I spotted the £2k price tag!

I will test fit the rear and get some snaps for you all, hopefully on my sparkly new bike bench if it arrives in time.
