Frame change from early to new blades?

At which points (between 1992 and now) was the frame changed on the Fireblade? I was wondering if it is possible to use the frame of a 1992 model and literally bolt on a newer Fireblade. Preferably the 1000RR, but I guess at some point there were made frame changes making this impossible.

The reason I am asking is that my country (Norway) has a special tax policy on motor vehicles among other things. This make a new Fireblade cost the equivalent of $28.000. Parts or a complete vehicle without license plates are only charged 24% VAT. Getting a old vehicle and stripping everything off the frame, then rebuilding it with newer parts are considered modification and free of tax.

Re: Frame change from early to new blades?

The 1000RR frame is completely different than the '02-'03 954 frame, which is slightly different than the '00-'01 929 frame which is completely different than the previous generation 900RR frame, which had minor changes around '97.
