So while doing some regular TLC and clutch work, after further examination it appears I have in my hand a "Rapterstein" (see pictures). I discovered that the swingarm actually came off from a 2007 Triumph Speed Triple 1050 fitted with a Honda RC36 (VFR750F) wheel. The rear shock housing from the swingarm required some mods to the frame (the previous owner did quite a nice job with the weld).
It also has undertail exhaust system with pipes taken (I believe) from '05 R1. Has a nice growl to it, but I do intend to revert back to its original twin sides configuration. Thinking about going with a set of MIVV titaniums.
Add a bit tidying with the electrics and should be able to ride her again in a week or so.
Have a great weekend, everyone. Cheers.
