Hey Stew, how's the engine come out of the DCM frame? Straight out the top?
Bob.

Never needed to remove it completely yet...but I'd say lift it up then out the side.

I'll have to do it in a while though...frame repairs.

Those are some very handsome frames. What's that finish? Chrome? Nickel plated?
I wonder how much flex is introduced (or removed) by using the motor as a (semi) stressed member.

@stewross,

Nice photos Stew. While I suspect the DCM chassis are superior in handling, I have always had a soft spot for the frames of Colin Seeley. The OMC frames look to be replicas of the classic Seeley but fitted for an SR. Can't think of anything cooler than that!

If anyone reading this has one for sale, please let me know. I have been yearning for one since I began reading the Japanese magazine, "Clubman" back in the early 1990s.
