    while looking over my 80 cb750f the other day i noticed an something
    that struck me as rather strange. about half way down the right front
    down tube of the frame, theres a split. its cut clean through the
    pipe. it does seem to be braced well with brackets and bolts. looks
    safe enough i guess. looks factory, not home hack job, but is it?
    whats this all about? should i be concerned?

  2. What he said.

    Many bikes have removeable frame sections.

    many thanks. i do feel easier but cant help but wonder these breaks in
    the frame somehow contribute to that occasional 'speed wobble' that ive
    experienced. ? brakets and bolts are all tight, couldnt be tighter,
    but would welding them up help to achive greater stabillity? if welded
    up, would engine removal be possible? i know this may be a whole new
    can o worms, but i wonder....

  5. It would be hugely more difficult.
    Seriously, don't bother. The deficiencies of early-1980s chassis are
    such that welding up the removable section would make no difference

    Many Honda motorcycles have removable frame sections and have no
    problems from them. All of the Gold Wing line have them and the engine
    could not be removed if they did not. I agree with all the others, do
    not weld it up.
