Anyone ever done one or more? What is a guy looking for in regards to a donor bike? R6, R1?

Sorry if this is posted often my skills at searching the site SUCK.

I would go with an RSV1000 Mille if I was doing a swap, Ive seen a few and very little frame mods needed, R6/R1 need a slot cut in the frame for a kick start..
The RSV needs a cradle and it nice and wide to take the 500 engine.

I have a 2016 R6 and I will get it in there, I have a book from Mr.Hook in Australia that shows his it's very nicely done, I believe in a match, my Mopar cannot have a Ford rear end or Chevy power heep your bike all Yamaha 😎
