So, a while back I stumbled upon vendor that builds aftermarket stunt frames that come with a VIN and paperwork. So I've been putting a little more thought into going that route for a few reasons:

1. Brand new frame so no worries on the condition or straightness.
2. Looks cool
3. Easier than trying to track down a stock one in decent condition for my year of bike (03/04)

Obviously there are some differences, but I'm not thinking any of the differences would have a significant impact on the functioning. But thoughts are welcome.

This is what I'm looking at.

StunterX Full Steel Frames

Anybody ever used their stuff or heard anything about it?

Thoughts?
A couple of things come to mind:

1. I'd need to be reassured that the person who made the frame knows what he's doing. The last thing you want is a frame failure.
2. Where are they getting the VINs? Are they wrecked stock frames where they cannibalize just the vin plates? Do they title these as some sort of low production experimental thing, like a kit car?

Number 2 especially seems like it could potentially lead to some headaches in terms of getting a title/registration/plate for it.

That thing looks freakin' cool, though. I kinda want one.
