Made some real good progress on my frame last weekend. The prior "customizers" thought they would do it rite by welding shitty plates to the axle plates in order to mold it in. Got the motor to fit in as well.
All cleaned up like it should be to show off those nice HD castings.
Cutting seat post section is a must when fitting an overhead valve motor is these old VL frames.
Thought Id be tricky and leave the cool rib on the bottom.
Ended up taking it all out like everyone else does.
Nice motor clearance.
A rough Idea of how she'll look.
