Default New guy in AK

Hello, I am new here. I have a '79 Shovel that has been sitting since my dad died (wrecked the bike) in '81. I got it back on the road last summer.

Right now it is pretty stock really with just some fat bob tanks and a wide glide fender. The front end seems to be 2" over.

I really want to build a rigid frame for it, maybe something with a little more room for my legs...

Welcome,
Sorry about your Dad. Good to see you got the bike on the road, if he's like us that's probably exactly what he would have wanted.
They make stretched hardtail kits for that frame.
