Question RV Racing Rear-Subframe - Opinions

Evening,

The old faithful K6 is currently being transformed into a minitwin/track & hill-climb bike (albeit rather slowly) and I'm looking at getting one of the RV Racing rear subframes.

I'm after opinions of anyone who has used or is using one on their bike and what their thoughts are of it?


Cheers.

I've had mine since 2012 and its perfect for me.
He made mine taller as requested to fit my 6'3" frame.

Its well made and the only issue is that I stripped one of the threads for the seat mount bolt. Being aluminium it doesn't take much.

Not sure Rob is still making things but if so then yeah, it'll be just the job and he made sure I was happy with mine once I'd received it.

If Rob isn't building at the minute, see Neil Pearson on the facebook minitwins group.

Thanks for your opinion, appreciate it. Is the fireblade seat the best option with Rob's subframe?

Cheers.

Well I've managed to get one on order from Jack Russel via the minitwin fb page. I've also ended up with both a Fireblade and GSXR race seat as I got a bit keen on eBay yesterday So one may be up for sale soon!
