Default 47 Industries. Welding and fabricating

47 Industries is in central NJ. We do welding and fabricating for custom bikes and hotrods. One off hardtails, custom handlebars, custom made parts, etc. Just about anything big or small. TIG and MIG welding and light machine shop work. 908-526-8865. Or PM Mike47 here on the board. More stuff at 47FAB.com.
Here's a few pix. of some recent work:

Fabbed the rear frame section of this Triumph street tracker to fit under the tail and still clear the tire. Also did some new oil tank mounts, and repaired the r/s shock mount, the taillamp mount and plate bracket (which was long on top for the customer to add a plate lamp). There is a small tang that keeps it from rotating on the bolt.

Thanks for the nice words from Josh, Ryzart and Andy. That gusset wasn't that prettiest but it works. Dr.Benway did most of that repair anyway. I just did some welding on the gusset. Josh made me stop filing the edges before I made it pretty!

I found some more pix. of a few pieces I did recently.

Weld on kickstand mount for internal spring stand. It was too low with the store-bought mount and would drag on left turns. I machined this one from a steel block. It raised it a bit over an inch.



Here's another plate mount. Single mount tab and single bolt mount and pinned so it won't rotate. .100" moly plate and gusset.


Aluminum foot pegs for custom forwards. Before polishing.


Recent hardtail/backbone job. It's still in the works in this shot. Backbone got capped off and those axle plates were smoothed and refined when done. I have to learn to take more pix. of finished stuff.


Thanks for checking this stuff out....Mike.

I also have to put in the good word for mike & his shop. even before we did any riding together he did some work on my tank & really helped me out by finally getting it to be totally leak proof & paintable.

He has all the tools & machines that any of us here only dream about & has some really fucking phenomenal skills. I still cant get over the complete car chassis that he's built & especially the one for his own roadster.

So you get a guy with great skills, great tools & a very professional & friendly treatment. That sort of service is typically unheard of so you know the work is certainly worth the fair price you'd pay.

HAHA. If I counted on my looks, I'd be f'ed.

Thanks for the props Joe.

Brady, I am so happy you are satisfied with the end result of your frame. Glad to be of service. Missed your crew on the Gypsy Run. Maybe next year?

Just finished up a bunch of stuck on Keez's (kirk's) Triumph. It's a pretty long list. I hope you guys like the work.

Overall shot with most of it together.


Reworked and re-gusseted the oil tube/hardtail joints.
Before. Huge solid plate:


After:


Mounted the fender and re-radiused it to fit the tire better. Welded up the Fab Kevin strut kit. Moved the seat x-member back to fit the seat springs. Made a t-bar mount on the frame to work with the Biltwell t-bar seat bracket and the Xian Leather covered Teach pan.



Made the remote oil filter bracket.


Had a little hole in the frame tube. Previous owner had weled a chunk of plate over the area. I cut it off and found this.


I bent a piece of tubing and sliced and diced a good fiting patch.


Tigged it all around and polished it smooth. Never know it was there.


Fine tuned the TROY FAB chain tensioner and on it goes.


More......

More...

Fabbed the plate bracket/tail lamp assembly. It's got a nice bit of curve and sits nice and tight to the frame. Mounts into bungs in the frame. Also you can see the axle adjusters. I made a set of allen head bolts from allen nuts welded to full threaded rod (all stainless of course). I also drilled register dimples in the axle head and made a register/spacer for the other side.



Getting the engine in and out on an OIF triumph kind of sucks if it's all together. To try to make things easier on reassembly Kirk wanted a removable l/s mount plate. I bent some plate and trimmed out a nice shape. It worked out great and is completely shimmable so swapping motors/cases in the future will be ok. Here it is.


And last and not yet done is the "oil tank" style electrical box. Kind of looks like an oil bag but actually is home to the battery and regulator and tympanium unit. Even a bit of extra room for small stuff/tools etc. Brushed stainless, stainless piano hinge and a fullwrap lid. I still have to louver the top as per Kirk's request and install the 1/4 turn latch/knob. I'll post up a better pic. when that's done.



Thanks for looking....Mike.

There's a lot of excellent fabricators/welders on board here (one of these days I'll be in the fair category) but if you're in the tri-state area, talk to Mike. He's definitely in the higher echelon as a businessman with excellent customer service and a professional attitude toward his work. Mike took my ideas, we bounced them around and he executed at a fair price with a quick turn-around. Not bad for a Jersey guy....call him, I highly recommend his work!

Thanks Teach and Rich Pit. for the props. You guys make some damn nice stuff as well.

I've been hiding and not posting so much lately. I have a ton of stuff in the wings. I'll be posting it as I get it all wrapped up and show ready.

In the mean time here's a new take on a Big Twin engine stand. My customer needed something small as he has no garage. The center x-member comes out so it can be stored in a tool box drawer or a kitchen utility drawer. Pix. were taken before I put the pinch bolts on it, but they are on the final product to keep the cross-member in place. As with all my stuff, I will build them by request. Contact me for pricing.

New product from 47 Industries:

Axle plates!!

These are available in either 3/8" or 1/2" thick. The 3/8" would be great for Harley or cb350, cb 550, kz 400, kz440 and a bunch of others. The 1/2" are good for Harley, xs and cb750. They will allow you to use the factory adjuster hardware and axle on the jap bikes, they just need a spot drill. I will do that as requested for no charge. I can out fit them with threaded bungs as requested for a few more dollars. Overall dimensions are 4 1/4" long, 5" high at front, 2" high at rear. 3/4 axle slot (needs some fine tuning for the jap bikes but the 3/4 allows nice tight fit on the jig), axle slot is 2 1/4" long. They can also be re-radiused to fit a loop style frame. There is also enough meat on these to rework and shape them to your liking. You have to fit them for your tubing angles and diameters but all bikes are different there so there's no way I could do that part.

$50 a set + shipping with polished edges/spot drilled.
Or
$35 a set + shipping with the flame cut edges/no drill.

PM or call 908-725-4389.

Just finished up this Cross Bones for Dan Tag. He wanted to clean-up under the new Xian seat. Here's the start.


I hammered out the fender. then cut out hole and fabbed a tray to sink the computer into the fender. I used the original fender piece as the cover.


Fabbed an aluminum battery cover and polished off all the weld beads and polished the cover up nice-nice. The tins all went out to Ryzart for his treatment. The finished product.

Close up of under seat.


One more.

It’s been far too long in doing this, my apologizes to Mike . . .

I had Mike do some work on a frame for me; it spanned the gamut from a simple weld, to mounting tabs to re-designing and building the entire back section.
I can assure you his work is impeccable, he’ll stand behind everything he does (he’s not crazy enough to stand in front) LOL….sorry.
He’s professional, his shop is clean and meticulous and his prices are more than fair (I’m going to get a discount on future work for this, right Mike)
I’ve had work done with other guys and we all have had our fair share of nightmares, but I would recommend Mike and 47 Industries to anyone who is just looking to get their “shit done right”!!!!!!!

Thanks for the props boys.

Dave, I'm especially happy that you liked the work. I look forward to being involved in the next leg of the build when you are ready. I'm sure you'll post pix. when it's all done.

Here's a triumph hardtail I made this week. The owner built an entire bike and discovered that the hardtail section tubing wasn't as thick as it was supposed to be. I saved his axle plates and duplicated all the dimensions so he could pretty much just bolt it all back together.

Cafe bike from the 70's are allowed on here right? If not then go ahead and delete.

This is one I had been working on for sometime. Just finished it up this week. '73 CB350 cafe racer. Lots of little mods here. Aluminum number plates, Benelli tank, HD tail lamp in a custom housing, clip-on bars, bates style headlamp, steering damper, shock mounted license plate holder, and some bigger Mikuni carbs. Paint by Ryzart is outstanding as usual.

Mike did an outstanding job on these bars for me. They are exactly what I had in mind and they fit me perfectly. Can't say enough good things about Mike and 47 Industries.

Thanks again!

Thanks guys. Glad you dig the work I'm doing. And thanks for choosing my shop to do it.

Here's the latest bit of work. A triumph with a David Bird hardtail. Had to mount the usual suspects.
Reinforced the lower portion of the motor mounts so the foot rest wouldn't bend them.


Needed to mount the West Eagle steel fender. The lower fender bracket had to be pretty long to reach from the x-member. Made this one and put it on a diet. Nothing super awesome, I know, but a bit nicer than a plain bent plate.


Oil tank needed to get hung. I centered it between the fender and the seat post/front loop. Then offset it a bit to clear the chain. A couple bungs in the tube and it all set.

Then on to the plate mount. This is bolted on with the l/s motor mount. Nice and sturdy 11 ga. and gusseted to fight off vibration.



One more shot of the r/s overall. I also welded up the seat mounts,and fabbed a little brake lamp tab on the l/s.

Thank you man! Glad you are getting use out of it.

Here's a CFL frame repair I did this week. The owner took it to another guy who said it as "done right and slugged". It was crooked, over-ground, and not slugged. I cut out about a foot of the backbone, slugged it and brought it all back straight. Also had to replace some gussets and that support bar. I did some other weld repairs to various other tabs and brackets to clean it all up.

Thanks you crazybastid!

Here's a set of z's I just finished up for another JJ member. His specs. 4 1/2" rise, 2 1/2" drop, 2" pull back. 1". I can do one off bars to your specs. z's or bends. I do them in 7/8 too.

Got this 83 Ironhead underway this week for a JJ member. +4" in the rear section. Reworked the backbone a bit too for a smoother transition to the rear half. Crossmembers still to come. More updates on this one soon.

Santee straight leg frame that got the wishbone treatment.

First check for straight and true and clamp it down. I made a Jig to take place of the engine and hold it all together. The bends are not perfectly the same as an original HD frame. We went with what worked best and looked similar to that without being super fussy.


Bend some pieces up and start to fit where the leg used to be. The lowers needed a bit of spreading so out came the torch. A bit of heat and some pulling and it lines up really nice. Cut and turned a few slugs. A slip and and bang and one's in.


Repeat on other side. Checking for straightness of the neck a few times in between. Straighten the rotation of the new sections. A bunch of welding and sanding and it's all done.

Here's a hardtail job on a Shovelhead frame I am just finishing up. V-twin axle plates look so nice on these bikes don't they?

Once you get the stance figured out go ahead and chop-chop.


Then it's time to start bending tubing and making slugs to get it all mocked back together.


Then adjust some angles and get some welding on there.


Then smooth it all out for a nice seamless finish.



Still needs a x-member in there. I'm on that tomorrow morning.

Where to begin... I didn't have the confidence in my skill set to go about hardtailing my 76 AMF garbage frame myself. When I approached Mike, he didn't even flinch at the idea of hardtailing it for me. He worked very closely with me and with what my expectations were for the outcome. Numerous times throughout the process, he spoke with me to explain what his next steps were and wanted me to be aware and what he thought was the best, while welcoming my input. Mike gives a shit abut what he does and it is completely obvious in the end result. If you want someone you can trust and will go the extra distance to do shit right, bank on 47. Mike, you're a fucking (sorry for the profanity, but I feel it's applicable) craftsman dude and I really couldn't be any happier with my frame. Thanks for a job well done.

Thanks guys, Glad you all into my work. Makes the day a bit brighter to hear that you guys are diggin' my flavor. Especially YOU guys. You make nice stuff too. And have some great taste in bikes so it means much.

Andy, I am very happy that you are so happy with the frame. You could have taken it to any number of guys to get it done but chose my place. I am flattered as hell and happy to have been involved, as I am with all the work I do-for everyone. Now go get to work on the rest! You have many long nights to go. You can do it.

Here's how my day went today. I did a Hardtail for another JJ member on his OIF Triumph. I think it turned out damn fine. I hope he thinks so. And as usual I hope you all like it too. It's a British Cycle Supply +2" tail. I chopped that stamped sheet metal area a bit and replaced the top plate with a flat one to meet the tubing nicer now that it goes straight back. I also added a sleeve of 1 1/4" over the lower legs to give it a better fit to the plate area and make it look a bit more "factory". After some filing and sanding it looks pretty nicey-nice. I still have to do the rear engine mounts. I'll get them done in a day or so and post them too.

The Mona Lisa of Oil In Frames! Mike you have out done yourself. I'm glad I shipped it clear across the country for you to work your magic. Looking forward to seeing it finished. It looks like it rolled out of the Meridian Factory that way.

OK. Here's the motor mounts on the Oil In Frame. This guy's using forwards so no need for foot rest mounts. I trimmed a set of OIF plates to come up with these. I left 1/4" between the plates and mounts for shimming the motor.

Thanks Shane. Bikes are smaller. Working on getting into the bigger place by winter. Hot rods are still a welcome thing here. I like to keep it fresh.

Hey Mike,
This is starting to freak me out a little!
I was haunted by 47's all day yesterday and today.

It all started when my buddy Kenny called me up around noon time yesterday and asked if I could come over to his house after work and take a look at his transmission. He was having an issue and had already pulled it out of the car. I said sure, I'll be over after work around 5:30.

I pulled up to Kennys house last night, here's the first thing I see:


So anyway, I take his tranny apart and find the problem. He wiped out a bushing and burned out a clutch pack. I tell him that I probably have the parts at my job, and that I'll just take the damaged drum with me and renew it there.

We bullshit a bit more in his driveway, and he points down at the chain on my bike. He says: "Your chain sure looks loose Fritz, you better adjust it" I look down at it and sure enough its real loose. Then I notice this:


WTF!? Anyway, I bring the drum to work today and find a brand new bushing for it. I go to press the bushing in and guess which bushing driver fits it?


Weird right? Well it gets weirder! I fit new clutch plates to the drum and throw it in my backpack. At 5 O'clock I hop on my bike and race over to Kenny's place to install it. Apparently I raced a bit too quickly because I get busted for speeding. Cop pulls me over and tells me I was doing 47 in a 30 mph zone! If thats not enough, what do I see staring me in the face as I sit on the shoulder?


I'm really getting the creeps by all this! It's a bit much to be coincidental I think. I just want it to stop!!!

Some pix of a BSA rear fender I just did some repairs on. It's grafted to a cb350 front half. I had to join them and had 8 "extra" holes to fill. The front joint is hidden under the frame so it didn't need to be perfect and most of the side profile is hidden as well. Off for rechrome.

Just finished mounting the fender, seat, and oil tank on this Triumph. Thanks Tom. I appreciate you coming such a distance to bring the bike. Means a lot to me.



Customer wanted a curved lower x-member to work with the fender. A nice idea for sure. Bolts from this side mean easier replacement if one takes a walk.


West Eagle steel duck bill fender. A bit wonky but the style is there. The struts are one off. No passengers mean they can be lightened up a bit. These are 5/16" with nice narrow mounts.



Custom front seat mount.


Check out the "spring spacers" to give the spring a better, tighter fit on the spud. They'll get held down with the hairpin clip on final assembly. No jiggly seat for this one.

Thanks for the compliments.

Here's the latest. A shovelhead frame job. Used those forged axle plates again. Some different stance/specs for this one than the last one. Everyone is done to customer specs to get the bike right where they want it.

Just made this top clamp for an old 18 over springer with an off sized, real narrow set-up. The risers are ultra narrow too.

Wow dude! That's a pretty serious compliment with all the great stuff on this board. I'm flattered. Glad you are enjoying the work.

Here's some more. I just made these stainless wheel spacers to go on a big twin springer. The axle, wheel bearing, and rockers were all crazy different. I turned the axle to 5/8 to fit the spool hub, then made these one-off spacers with counter bores and shoulders to fit the rockers and axle and center up the wheel/tire.

Another testimonial here. I didn't have the required 50 posts to post in the classified section. I also did not want to spam the JJ just to get 50 posts. Unfortunately I do not have cool bikes like everyone else has on this board, so I usually just read and look at photos admiring the craftsmanship exhibited here.
I work at an HD dealership. Part of our service procedure is doing "fall away" adjustments on neck bearings. On my own bike I just tighten it till I feel resistance and back off and lock it down Since I am wrenching at a dealership, I have to do it by the book.

The dealership I work at is verrry lacking in shop tools. I needed a free standing device with a pointer, that was adjustable. You center the pointer on the front fender. You then tap the side of the fender, until it falls away on its own. You do this on both sides, marking each point where the front end falls away. You then measure each fall away point and adjust to get it within spec.

Mike made a beautiful piece of equipment fo me. He did it to my specs, then improved upon it, giving me more than I asked. When I first asked him to do ths job for me, I wanted a ballpark price, which he gave me. He then proceeded to add more time and material than the job originally called for.

It is rare for people these days to exceed expectations. It was a small job, but he got right on it. I am just a mechanic, but I eyeballed his shop. I looked over his work. It is spot on I would recommend Mike for any job, especially frame work. He is a mechanic, welder, engineer and fabricator rolled into one.

That last post made me hate Mike47. Anyway here is a nifty little tank stand Mike made for me. Here was my problem : I needed something that i could mount a tank on and be able to work on whether i am airbrushing or pinstriping or spraying. Something that can rotate 360 degrees around. I know alot of people (including myself) would hang their parts when spraying which is fine but once you get going sometimes the air can get your parts moving around alot which annoys the shit out of me. Also if i had to stripe one side of the tank i would prop it up with paint cans and such and when i want to do the other side i would have to wait and let the side i just striped dry before i could place it on its other side to stripe the opposite side. (That sentence didnt sound right) This is also a pain especially if your using 1-Shot paints which alot longer to dry than urethane striping paints. So i expressed my pain to Mike and he made me feel alot better. By the way the stand i got was from another friend of ours, Petey. He is a tattoo artist and Mike made that base originally as a stand for someone to lay their arm on when getting tatted. It goes back to what crazybastid said about Mike. He does more than needed or expected. That stand is made from chrome moly-tubing. It didnt have to be, it could of been regular cold rolled steel tubing and it would of still been plenty strong to support some fat guys arm. But Mike puts out quality work and always does a little more than what you paid for and if he's going to put his name on something he wants it to look great. Mike you rule.

Just put these Lester mags on this Triumph with a girder. Customer wanted disc brakes just to make things more interesting.

Fabbed the stainless axle spacers, caliper bracket, stay rod, stainless brake line. The sprocket adapter/spacer and the rotor spacer were fabbed from aluminum. Chopped down stainless spike nuts for the rear. Fabbed the axle.

BSA 1/2 mile dirt racer Goldstar thumper frame I did some work on. It was a chopper victim from "back in the day". Cut, solid slugs, kinked tubes. You name it, this frame suffered from it.




After some cutting, tube replacement, a lot of welding, and even more sanding I got it finished.

Here's some more. I just made these stainless wheel spacers to go on a big twin springer. The axle, wheel bearing, and rockers were all crazy different. I turned the axle to 5/8 to fit the spool hub, then made these one-off spacers with counter bores and shoulders to fit the rockers and axle and center up the wheel/tire.
Just got a set of these made for my v twin springer to go with my 5/8 spool hub. Came out awesome. Fit perfect and look kick ass. Got Mike the measurements over the phone from 3000 miles away. Didn't have to send him my springer or wheel. Had the spacers and axle done in a couple of days. Thanks Mike.

Thanks JP. Glad everything worked out well. I appreciate you sending the axle so far and trusting me to do it right.

Here's a Triumph I just finished a bunch of work on.


Oil tank mounts fabbed from solid bar stock.


Lower oil tank mount from bar stock and tubing.


License plate bracket.


Battery tray, cover, and lower fender mount. You can see the ribbed edges on the motor mounts too. This is done to stop them from flexing at the foot rest mounts.


Headlamp mounts. I can make these (I make anything you see on here as per your specs or mine) for all you big twin springer guys. Use your bates style bottom mount 5 3/4" headlamp. Can be swiveled upward too to get the light way up high on those retro-styled machines. They are jig built for symmetry and centering. I can add cross bars to make them one piece if you wanted. Can be made in stainless too.

I had this Bsa Goldstar frame kicking around here for a bit now. I did one for the guy a few weeks back now this one. You'll notice a lot of little things got done like the seat mount, gas tank mounts, removal and filling of extra holes, and of course the bottom half was missing. Started out like this:


Bent some rails. Biggest issue here was making a jig to press that loop in the right side rail to clear the case bump. Took about 6 tries to get it right. Landed it pretty good though.



Real busy back here at the base of the seat post. Copied the factory original design.


I can only take credit for one of those tabs on this oil tank. Nice item. I have no clue who made it but it is well done.


Overall finished job.

Been a while since I shared anything with you guys. I moved into a new bigger shop and have been busy. Here's some of the work over the last few weeks.

This is a 1985 Ironhead hardtail job with 2" of stretch. I try to keep them looking like they could have come from the factory this way.

OIF tail job with a 6" over David Bird tail. I did the lower plate areas my own way for a cleaner look. Also made some extensions for the swingarm hole to be able to mount some new motor mount plates. This one is getting forward controls so we cut some minimal mounting plates from 1/4" steel plate.

Kraft tech frame needing the usual suspects. Mounted the fender, Modified the oil tank to be able to mount the rear of it and the rigid seat all with just 2 bolts. Also fabbed the sissy bar and plate/lamp mount. And welded on the kickstand mount.

I haven't posted anything here in a while. I moved into a new larger shop and have been real busy between the work load and cleaning up and setting up the way I want it.

Here's a set of what might be the worlds tallest ape hangers. 25" tall. 1 1/2" OD tubing. The guy is 6' 7" tall. He looks normal on the bike with these. His hands are actually below his shoulders!

We got this one mailed in for a custom seat x-member. Made one bent with about 2 1/2" of drop for the seat shocks so the seat wasn't 6" over the frame. After some work on the shocks, mounts and the x-member we got a nice sleak line. We also made the sissy bar, reworked the rear fender and mounts and filled/drilled the neck gusset area. The fender front bottom was trimmed after these pix. so it didn't hang under the tubing like it does here.

Tunneled this Mustang tank with motor mount reliefs.


And this sporty tank. It was already narrowed, I formed the bottom and welded it in.

Steve, Sorry to never answer this. I am not heavy enough to compress them much. They were ordered for a 300 lb. dude. I'm just a skrawny little 185 lb. stick. HAHA! I'm sure they beat a set of barrel springs anyday though when rated accordingly.

I haven't posted anything new here in a while. The shop is busy and my internet time is way less than it was. We did this stainless steel sissy bar and fork brace for a '99 Excelsior Henderson for a JJ member. He sent us down his originals and we used them as templates with his specs. Sissy bar is 1/2" stainless round bar with hand cut brackets and plate/lamp mount. The fork brace is 1/4" stainless flat stock with lightening holes. We bent it in the press brake.

Panhead wishbone frame repair for Osprey. He found all the neck work after he bought the frame. Looks like a rake/window pane job that got de-raked, and un-window paned and bondo-filled....twice at least. And not really well either time. Used a V-twin repop forging to make it happy again. replaced a good clip of the backbone too.
Here's the blasted neck.


On the jig during the surgery.


All fixed up and welded.

Easily one of the best people I've ever done business with. From whatever angle - quality, price, communication - 47 Industries went above and beyond. Couldn't recommend anyone higher.

Thanks Keith and Corey for the kind words. Glad to be involved in that project Keith. Keep it up!

Here's a Triumph we did some work on:

Relaced the rear wheel with Stainless spokes and rechromed the hub to a Harley drop center 16". Chromed the drum. Mounted the modified Fab Kevin plate mount. Installed the Troy Fab tensioner, Biltwell seat and gas tank mounts, filled and smoothed the loops off the head tube. Mounted the oil bag. Mounted the 7 Metal West fender and fabbed the skinny struts.
Pic sucks. sorry

Thanks man! Good dude. Hope it's coming along well for him.

Been crazy and not updating much. Up late so I figured I'd post up something a bit different. This is the tail end of a long term build for us here. Engine rebuild work lately. This thing is like a clock. I love it.


Made some front wheel spacers and a brake link from stainless and got them shined up.

Just did some work for "topher" from 313 paint. We mounted his GME gas tank, oil bag, and rear fender. Fabbed the sissy bar to his design and mounted his custom seat. We also replaced a frame x-member that was drilled through and bent.

The seat was already done for another bike so all fab work needed to be done with the leather on. Only burned it a little bit. There's only so much we can do in this case.
Here's the modified rear saddles that sit on the x-member:


This post goes into the pogo hole:

OG wishbone frame neck replacement. This is a V-twin neck forging. We were able to save the original backbone and downtube tubing without any slugging and replaced the secondary support tube.

Starting in on another wishbone frame. The neck was chopped to nothing and had a lot of heavy handed grinding on it and the back bone. Replacing the neck forging, backbone all the way to the seat forging, secondary support tube, and side car loops. We saved the original down tubes. Also gonna be getting the tool box mount put back on and new top motor mount and tank mount.

Got this one nailed down. Race Frame Engineering supplied us with the neck, backbone and support tube on this one. Took a bit to get it shipped from Australia but man are their parts worth it.
All fit up.


On the fixture table.



All welded up.

Diamonds are forever!

Custom stainless steel bars. Customer's design idea. Flared bungs, welded and polished handles, nice and narrow. Custom bent stainless brake line too. Yes there is another grip. I couldn't get it off the old bars by myself before the pix.

We've been working on this for a bit. '94 1200 sporty. Ledsled +2" tail section that we reworked to be 1"+ as we moved the axle slots forward 1" to be able to run the Flyrite sprotor. 39mm front end witht he trees smoothed and shined. Rear 16" wheel was rebuilt in house with new stainless spokes and the rear hub l/s flange was machined off and rechromed. We used modified cb750axle adjusters to solve the clearance issue. Front wheel is a new cheapy 21". Avon rubber front and rear. Front street rear fender held on by a custom stainless sissy bar. and a nifty little fender brace/battery hold down thingy. Troyfab's lovely little tail light back cover is rad and there's enough room in there to hide some wire and connectors. We took 3/4" out of the front of the tank and nothing in the rear. We filled the filler and rolled a bump to resemble the ford spare tire cover style fender. Tunneled the hell out of it to hide the front master cylinder. Put a new filler in it with a standpipe vent. Moved the petcock back and ribbed the flat bottom to add some rigidity. The oil bag is stainless. Started as a 5" tube. We added flat side pieces and a bunch of bungs for the fittings. Notched it to fit around the backbone. I guess the rest of the details are Biltwell bars, Hippykiller pegs and grips, redtail seat, Haifley p-pad-yet to go on, Paughco pipes, and Biltwell risers. Paint on the frame and small parts by my buddy JR. The tins are of course by the very talented Ryzart. Polish and chrome by Artistic Metal Finishing in Somerville, NJ.

I'll post pix after it gets polished up. We still have a few details to wrap up and I need to wipe all our grubby finger prints off the shiny bits but I rode it a bit already and it is fun. Off to it's new home in Brooklyn next week.

went down to Mikes today to get my bike that he made the above bars for. craftsmanship is excellent as most of you know and good all around guys in him and Ryan. The work on the above sporty is amazing and the paint is incredible in person. Got the new bars on that he made and took it out for a wet ride before the hurricane gets here.

I just read this thread from start to finish, and I must say, Mike, you are an inspiration to me. In ten years I hope to be where you are at. I do not post on the board much anymore, because I have alienated myself from society to the confines of my day job restoring cars, and my garage building anything I can afford to get my hands on. I have one question for you though. When you do frame repairs, how do you go about making sure the neck is level in relation to the rear axle? When I hardtailed my sportster I did not take this into consideration, and the bike always had a slight drift to the left. Any info you would care to share with a young buck would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Chad.

Chad, Sounds like my own bike! My bike is the first frame I ever built and it was done on a stolen school cafeteria table in the dead of winter with a string and a really old level. There's no secret except measuring a lot. Our frame jig and fixtures are built from known good frames and factory blueprints. The axle plates are level as you can see in the pix. We also use blocks and shims under the frame rails at times to check those as well, but that isn't always gonna mean that the frame is straight (or bent) either. Generally you want the axle plates and neck/front end in plumb to get a straight ride. As for the neck being level we use an alignment bar with cones to find center and point to the center line of the jig table checking height and rake angle as we go. A good amount of these HD frames are pretty far off from the factory so you might be dealing with that? Sometimes the neck pointer will be a full 1/4" off from the factory! We also use a couple visual pointers in other locations to check for plumb and level. Usually we can get to 1/16 to 1/8" of dead nuts. The longer the front end you put on the more noticeable any imperfections get. Hope that helps a bit.

Awsome. Thanks for the reply. I just read a page i found by googling "how to keep neck level to rear axle" and it explaned how to build a frame from scratch over 70 pages of pdf. I did not read it all word for word but skimmed over it for the important stuff. The article described using an alignment bar and straight line as you have mentioned. Now it all makes sense to me. Once again, your work is top notch.

These wishbone frame axle plates had been "CHOPPERIZED" somewhere back in the day. The center stand mounts and stop blocks were sawed off. We made new loops and blocks from scratch and using our axle plate jig tools we aligned and welded them up.

Evo sportster hardtail with 2" of stretch. Custom bent from dom tubing. All Tig welded. We added the little kick in the back bone extension to get rid of the dreaded "bump" under the seat. This way the bump is under the tank and you don't see it once the bike is assembled. We do these in 4" over as well and 2" and 4" over for later Ironhead frames too.

I haven't been updating this thread as well as I should be but we have been busy here and have lots to offer you guys so let's start here:

We have a new line of hardtail sections for 86-03 Evo Sportsters. Our tails are .120" wall DOM tubing. All TIG welded in our fixtures. Our design features 1 1/4" lower rails that match the front rails of the factory frame and give an uninterupted flow to the frame. Those rails extend back to the fender area before kicking up helping to fill the dreaded empty spot between the wheel and the engine that is so prominent on these bikes. This also allows the huge factory battery to fit in there. In addition this will also allow the use of sprotors as there is more room between the top and bottom tubes and your factory caliper can be modified and can fit in between as well. Our top tubes are 1 1/8" to lighten the look a bit. We add a kick down in the back bone to ease the "seat bump" and give a more inline backbone look. Our curved seat post allows more room for your oil tank. A 5" round tank fits without the need to notch it or jam in in the corner resulting in wide gaps between parts. Axle plates are a full 1/2" thick.

Installation is 3 cuts and 3 welds with some basic measuring. No plating. no extra ugly gusseting. Once its all together and the welds are filed smooth it has the appearance of a factory rigid frame. we offer installation as well if you chose to drop or ship your frame to us.

We offer options such as chrome axle and adjuster kits with all the spacers (no more guess work-we worked it all out for you including driveline alignment), battery trays, oil bags, fender mounts, and anything else you want.
Call 908-526-8865 or email mike@47fab.com for more details

I'll post more pix and some on a roller soon

I have no pictures, sadly, but Mike recently un-fucked a frame for me. Cleaned off all the booger welds, repaired all the overground sections, mounted a tank that will never come off, and generally was a nice guy about the whole thing.

A+++, would cup balls again.
