    CA XR75 Trick Chromoly Frame - Build/Project

    So, after almost a year of searching I got lucky and found a Chromoly frame for an XR75.

    It is a NOS Cycle Factory frame, built originally (i think) for Flat Track. The seller told me it is one of five XR75 frames the company built in the late 70's.

    This frame is actually the reason I joined the forum, as I think I will need some advice/help from more the more experienced as I build this bike.

    I was planning on putting longer travel suspension, and a XR100 with a big bore kit in the frame. I would love a Takegawa 146cc, but I dont think I can justify the cost.

    is When minibikes are outlawed,
    only outlaws will have
    minibikes. You can have mine
    soon as you pry my cold dead
    fingers off it.

    Agreed. Clear coat or chrome plate would be my vote. Such a beauty, it would be a shame to cover it up.

    To me the frame looks nickel plated...most dirt track frames were plated back in the 70s and 80s because of the durability over paint and besides that it looks cool !!!
    Awesome frame wish it was mine

    Glad you guys like the frame as much as I do.

    I got the frame in the mail over the weekend, and put a seat and tank on it just to see what it would look like. I'll have to figure something else out for the seat I think.

    It looks like it may be set up to use 77-8 tank and seat. You have a 73-6 set up on it in the picture. I don't see any provision for the tank rubbers up front by the stem. That is a fantastic find you got there.

    Yea that's a great find. Very possible flat track cause it looks like there is not much rake in the front neck. Can't wait to see it done
    Ride on the edge
