frame review

Took one final look at the frame before powdercoating down at Banke Performance yesterday. Here you can see how the frame rails were reattached for a more horizontal position with the swept down right side for shock pin accessibility.

The distal end of the XR's only Exhaust pipe is absolutely hopelessly not going to work. Too long, too wide in the tire's way. The header will be fine, but Banke will have to come up with some sort of muffler and adapt to it. alack.

Banke's powder coater guy is some curmudgeon who won't do anything unless you select a chip from his special samples box though my colorblindness should preclude such fussiness.
