    I've got a DHZ crf70 style frame and its great quality. Just depends if you want to do a jap or china build mate. Also the DHZ crf50 frames are a little taller.

    Yer i wouldn't touch it if you have a crf50 . better off spending the money strengthening the stock frame , or put towards a decent aftermarket frame.

    Problems like the rear end setup not working , exhaust not lining up , forks not bolting on at the stem etc etc...
