Triumph Street Fighter project - "Ferocious Tiger 900"
I have just got a hold of a complete crash damage 1998 Triumph Daytona 900 UK Model. All the parts have been salvaged and are in excellent condition but the frame snapped in half and most of the fairing and bodywork is now dust.
I am now in the process of looking for a replacement frame from the same year - having looked at some seriously trick bikes I have decided to rebuild the bike into a streetfighter using GSXR Fairings and bodywork (2000 models) and some ducati and fireblade bits.
What I wanted to know is if its possible to scrap the modular frame the Daytona uses and go for the 2000 model alloy frame as on the 955i as I have been offered one with the trailling arm for very little money.
Is it possible, I know the engines are different but I am hoping that it will fit after some persuasion - what other bits can I fit on? I am confident I can bolt everything on from the Daytona 900 minus a few specific bits for the 955i.
If this sounds crazy then are the standard modular frames any good as I have heard they are prone to snapping in half and the look a bit naff.
All the feed back would be appreciated as I want to get the project rolling so I can post some pics on this forum!
