I have had this Pilot sitting in the garage for years, it was purchased from member 'colin" back in the day-the frame has damage in the front left(looking at it from the front)and suspension damage added to it. It is a solid rebuildable unit with time and effort. I will start by stripping the entire unit down to the bare frame which will then be taken to fab shop to see if we can fix it. The unit still has the OEM fuel recovery system on it along with the stock OEM heat shield by the seat and OEM rear silencer cover. More to come as I just moved this to the shop area for dis assembly.

He going to put it on a frame machine heat and pull it back straight?

don't forget more pics as you progress, that frame does not look as bent as the one I bought in Vegas.

I bet it will, if not exact really close where it wont matter, this is where the YODA kit would come in handy you have the adjustability where a slightly bent frame really don't matter long as its safe, I am sure your fab guy will add gussets where ever he feels they might be needed.

Dave-Co working on a +2" bolt on arm kit yet or you have a extra YODA kit in stock? Heck you could even swap a YODA kit off your other straight machine onto this one if worse came to worse?

As a matter of fact I have a Yoda kit for this project yup. I will ask Dave-CO if he is making a front kit. He is pretty bis from what I have heard.
