I have calipers and front ss lines too. Vortex 2 piece clip on fork mounts, no bars with them though. Think I have some levers too. Let me know Keith. I have most of it besides the forks (because I already sold you those lol)

I really like this particular bike. I Was wanting to powder coat the frame anyway.. either way its going to take time n money. Wouldn't mind the experience of rebuilding. Started it up today. Sounded okay. Here a few pics I have. Click image for larger version

Bluewave has always seemed pretty mellow in my book.

If I just broke my back in two places I doubt I would be riding anytime soon! Good luck with whatever path you go down. I heard down off Harwin you could get a frame for $100, probably no VIN tag on it though.

Sorry just heard about that crash, glad you are healed up... Regarding the bike, I would go for another bike, used or new, just a different chapter in your life.

Well the gas tank just popped up off the bolts. The front wheel is tucked against the exhaust.

in a accident with damage to the back you may find the sports bike is no longer comfortable to ride especially with injuries to lower back l4 l5 area. cruisers man turn the page

Ok f me........lol

That frame is dead.


I'm a good sport though. I'll hit a friend up that may have a spare frame laying around. Doesn't change a thing. Used frame & you're good to go. The forks even look straight.

I spent 20 years in various areas of the crashed bike business.......repairng A bike doesn't quite put us on equal footing. Just keep stirring that pot though.

Have you sent the OP ad PM offering to look at his frame? If not, your post is moot, and your advice is as good as any one else's on this forum. Welcome to the interwebz.

That frame is tost. But if you could find one that comes with a title just start swapping the good parts over

I have been building and repairing leggo bikes for about 175 years, I have done thousands.. so trust me when I say not even leggos can fix that frame..

Im glad you're recovering keith, but it is surely better and way less hassle to get a different bike. (New to you) whatever it is.

motohouston and the drama..
