          thats all you need, frame and forks, because most of the stuff needs replacing anyhow, just got to work out custom or stock

            which is the hoop support? I don't think there are cracks any where, just abit of rust. rear hub mount is ground about 1/3 to 2/5, still feels strong.

              stock, except for seat, wheels, tires, tank, fenders, bars, exhaust, speedo and engine, otherwise stock.

                  wow, stock frame and forks, custom everything else, you can weld and grind back rear wheel mount tabs, problem is it will cover the build date stamp, unless you record it and restamp

                    Looking to build something to ride so thinking custom. parts of the build date has been grounded off, what's visible is 7310 so assume it's oct 73. Is the build date required for rego? frame number still clearly visible.

                      it might pay to take a clear photo of the stamped date before you do anything to the frame, it might assist you latter when it comes time to rego the bike, i'm pretty sure rego department are only keen on the other side with the frame identification numbers, better to be safe than sorry, when in doubt give rego dept a call

                        Hoop suports are just what i call the two small " bout an inch each " posts that go from the boxed engine mount on the frame that join to the rear hoop sections that form the rear of the frame.
                        They are a common place to find cracks or snaps on a hardtail.

                          no cracks on hoop supports.

                          Interested in how much (ball park) people have paid for hardtail frame, tank, tail light, headlight bucket to be:

                          1. blasted and powder coated
                          2. blasted and 2 pack paint

                          is $350 for sand blasting and powder coat reasonable?

                            I get my frame and parts blasted and etch primed for around $100. I have had frames powder coated for under $100 after i had them blasted.
                            $350 sounds a tad rich, But well cheaper than getting someone to paint the parts in 2K. I guess for $350 you'll have the jod done. I wouldn't powder coat the tank but thats just me, People do though. Are you going for stock or custom colour??

                              For the stem nut, Try giving the thread a tune with a wire brush, Heaps of WD and a big pair of vise grips.

                              Oh yeah, I wouldn't be too worried about the date number for rego, for my blue slip i just told them the year, Theyré never going to pop your wheel off for a look. My axle support was chewed out also, I just welded it up and smoothed it over and now the date has gone but not an issue for rego i don't think.
