    Default 70ís Amen Savior frame

    I bought the frame and am curious if anyone can identify these mounts. Was told it was on a 650 Triumph at one point. Iíve also heard it looks like a smaller CBís? Just looking for some help identifying.

    It's a Honda CB500/550 Amen Savior, note how the front downtubes come off the neck at an angle, then bend up high, and are parallel down to the bottom bend; here is Amen's rigid version for comparison:

    Note comparison to the CB750 Amen; the bend in the front downtubes is lower, and the engine mounts differ from the 550:

    found this:

    "...I have a custom amen frame for a 550 and at one point I tried to fit a 750 motor in it, and there is way more room in there than a stocker. It would have required all new motor plates, mounts, and a butt load of time. Plus I would have had to great creative with the exhaust since the down tubes ran right in front of the exhaust port."
