How to fit a frame hoop to a Yamaha SR400

Frame hoop

Chopping the rear off a motorcycle to fit a frame hoop might be a bit intimidating! So, while I was doing this one for a customer, I filmed the process from start to finish.  But I didn’t do my typical time-lapse video at high speed.  I really wanted to help you understand HOW and WHY I cut and welded it like I did.

This is a long video, split into two parts. Each is around 18 minutes long.  Please email me if you have any questions about details I didn’t cover enough in the videos.
