Default KyleNV build thread,frames,swingarms,stuff!

Due to issues with photobucket I am just copying and pasting some of my work from my VENDOR SECTION. Work By KyleNV wheel widening, Fat Tire kits,
KyleNV custome motor mounts, hidden caliper brackets, custom frame work, misc stuff

Just some random pictures of my work. Thanks to all of the membors who have allowed me to use there pictures in my advertising.

***260 swingarm/ 9" wheel/ hidden caliper bracket all in midnight finish (silvereagle)


***hidden caliper bracket/ modified wheel and swingarm, custom pegs, fork caps, tons of little tasteful mods and My guinea pig customer who would just pay for anything new before even seeing it and say if you think it's cool just send me one.....Great Guy And Toured and starred In the Best Music Video Of my Generation......wait for it...............

***and you thought you garage was full!! well mine is full of your wheels and my wheel blanks


***WORLDS FASTEST WARRIOR BUILD***
By Far The Wildest Warrior On The Planet, I can not take credit for as much as I would have liked to as this "Wild Man" moved and it was not cost effective, but frame work, misc. gusset, bracing, welding, swingarm reinforcements, etc. I can take credit for. "I was absolutely honored and humbled to be allowed to work on such an amazing bike build"





***Tear Drop Tank Stretch, Will post more pictures when I find them...


***Great before and after shot.

My current Warrior Project, 300mm tire, raked triple trees, extended forks 1.5", etc


One-off offset Pulley for huge tire and chain drive conversion


raked warrior frame "The safe and meant to be ridden version"


Raked Warrior Frame "Hidden and flawless finish but I would not sell this for someone riding there bikes daily"


Frame that is shortened(believe it was 6" shorter) for removal of transfer case (which was like 40lbs.) also experimenting with the frame rake.... This was my first Warrior and the bike I used to try all my crazy ideas on. I will try to find pictures of this with a single sided ducatti swingarm when I get time.


Great picture of the Hidden Caliper Bracket Installed and what a huge difference it makes in the "LOOKS" department

Batch of hidden caliper brackets getting ready for shipping


not warrior related but locally stuffing giant two stroke bored out cr500 motor into tiny and more modern aluminum frames crf 125, 250, a few ktm, etx. example of this work lower frame built and welded my me


One of my old bikes, I mounted a VFR swingarm, and believe it was a Lexus car wheel with a 210 tire, custom under engine exhaust(biggest pain in the ass ever) also hidden inside the fairing while still haiving a full size muffler, etc.


I also repair fuel tank, cells, cryogenic tanks, etc, several times a year, many are still full of fuel, yes you can weld them, no I will not give online advice on how to do this, feel free to call if you need any advice before trying something like that your first time.

And let me say this, I thought women liked motorcycles and big muscles and all that stuff...Nope! they like Chihuahua's. Couldn't be happier that my Ex left and abandoned this little sweetheart with me.

Your 280 swingarm looks pretty heavy duty Kyle.Are you going to run a 280 on that raked out frame?I just bought me a big azz welder,and with a good bit of practice,I will try the neck rake also.You have done a great job on all of your stuff,and made it affordable for the forum members.Kudo's to you.

Parkinglot- We have waited this long, what's two more months...haha!

Gilly- Yeah the 280 arm is pretty beefy, I built a more traditional arm and decided to go with this one. People I asked said no hump was wanted but they still wanted more so I thought for a while and decided this was the best way even though it is very time consuming.
Not sure what I'm doing with my bike. I built a right side drive arm for the big conversion but after seeing how the chain will sit I am really not happy with the looks at all. I am still spending a good hour a night just staring at my bike to see what is best but at this point I may end up running a normal belt set up due to the looks being so much cleaner. The frame rake turned out great but man it was a lot of hand sanding to get my gussets back to stock looking while still keeping tons of strength. If I were to do it again I would leave the welds as it looked cool and would not give my hands blisters
