It is definately cast aluminum...that I know, I am curious if it is 6061 or 50 series 40 series...or what. Also is it heat treated?

Just to clarify why, I am welding a 1998 Honda CR 125 R steering neck to that front upper frame and putting inverted forks on it. I am doing it similar to Fabrice's build {Fab418} so I just want to pick the right rod to weld with and then have it all heat treated...but 50 series aluminum is not heat treatable. The CR neck is 6061-T6 heat treated aluminum from what I have found...just need to know.

Thanks
