Garage
I am just wondering how the drive shaft is going to work... how much drop is this frame going to give you, and lastly... what are your overall goals for the bike build?

Loveing it so far by the way

thanks guys , slim, i really didn't lower the frame so much as took alot off the top just about 2 inches lower so the u joint has no trouble at actually a decreased angle. overall i got knocked down last month by a cager coming home from work ( second shift, read bar close) didn't hurt me or the bike bad but was enough to bust somthing loose on the stator. well i have this old ron finch springer that was looking for a home sooo,,,, since i had to tear it down anyway

just a thought since your stripped down to the frame anyways how about modding the frame where you would have enough room to pull the generator cover without pulling the motor next time looks like it could be done without touching the motor mounts
