no idea, that wasnt a very common frame. are you buying one? it could also be a standard link. the advantage of it is its probably stronger and more ridged than stock.

Do you mean PRM frame? I don't think RPM (axles) ever made a frame. I have seen PRM frames with standard rear link and CR500 link. There is one on ebay right now. Perks would be the same as any aftermarket frame. Stronger than OEM and better geometry if you are looking at a CR500 rear and narrow front.

Correction. It is a PRP frame.

You can search 250r and sort by highest price first. It says "250R race ready".

Nope, none of those. Its a true RPM frame. I cant find any info on it anywhere. Its a sweet frame though..never seen a frame with better quality. The shock towers are adj. and the rear has 3 different mounting points(maybe for cr500 and/or no link) Also Im not sure what kind the swinger is either but its got adj mounting points as well...???

"Attempt" and "copy" are NOT words I would use to describe this frame. Does anyone have any info on this frame? I cant find specs or anything for it.

That frame doesnt look anything like a Roll Design frame. If its a RPM frame Id say its good stuff. Their stuff is excellent quality.

From what I can see of it it looks like a Laeger style frame.

It doesn't look like the lobo chassis, but it could resemble some of their early frames. Never saw one though.

theoretically it could be a copy of some early roll frame. if thats the case leager, lonestar, arens, etc are all copies too. about the only thing the same between that frame pictured and rolls most popular and well known chassis, the lobo chassis is they both use round tubing.

RPM makes excellent quality products. is the frame in question yours? where does it say its made by RPM, and is it dated?

Yes its mine. It came from a guy in AZ. It says RPM engraved in the frame brace between the front shock towers. Ill take a pic soon. I never knew RPM made a frame myself and I have googled and googled but cant find anything about this frame. Ive never seen a Lobo frame up close but I have seen Laeger, Arens, and a few others but none have looked like this.

Perhaps RPM made a few test frames, but never marketed them. Either because of the production rules, or they didn't feel it was viable. Just a guess.


Other than the adjustable shock mounts I see nothing uniquely in common with any Roll frame I've seen.

Well, RPM is just up the road in Prescott, and I know a couple of guys there. Want me to ask?
