Ensure its nice n straight when putting it back together.
Do a search to finD the distance between the 2 points to ensure you have correct rake angle
I did measure it first, 390mm if memory serves on mine. If it needs adjusting my mate has a Portapower i can use.

It looks like it has been patched in a couple places. It's doable but would need a fair bit of welding and some fabbed or replacement sheet metal.
Yes it has, these will be cut out as the quality is a bit, erm, junk to put it politely.Repair panels have been ordered from SIP where possible, the rest will be fabbed by welder, he's a dab hand at this sort of thing.

At then end of the day, I'm doing it for me so I want it doing the best it can be, if it costs more then so be it.

I measured my Rally at 36.5cm from the point of the seat base to the top corner of the fork tube.

But not sure if my frame is perfect.

I looked around for this measurement, and can't find anything official.

Get SoCal to measure his and report back. I think he has a statistically valid sample of Supers in his garage.
