It is a butchered stock frame running the straight style Profab swingarm and Simmon forks.  The forks, swingarm and fox airshocks are what is worth money today. The frame may have been deraked. If so, they did a poor job of it. Looks very heavy and they aren't really light to begin with.

I'd like to see a few more better photos of it from more angles and the under side.  Also you maybe should repost a new thread titled  "TT500 frame I.D."  I think you'll get more responces. Everyone likes a mystery  :)

I will take a few more pics and change the  title. Thanks for the tips. And by the pcsnd it is not a stock frame there is no # stamped in the head, not deraked and whoever built it was an excellent welder it was a very well made frame. thanks for your input .

Michael,

After some closer examination, I agree. See if you can find a picture of a Dick Mann Racing motocross frame. He was one of the few that didn't build the HL copy.

DM was the first I thought of but it's easy to find photos of those frames and it's not one of them. Did you get it in California ?

Yes I did get it in CA. I have not seen a DM frame. The frame looks like a Mann version 1 until you get to the adjusters at the swing arm pivot. So many things are similar like no serial #, stock Yamaha stuff bolting up to it, Timken bearings in the steering head. Thanks for your help. MIke
