Will, sometimes you have to move forward to go backwards. It isn't easy to sell a roller and usually it is done with great financial loss. If you could replace the '57 motor with another pan you are not attached to you may find it a lot easier to sell the bike and probably without a loss. There are still states that make it easier to license new builds and an ad on an international marketplace like ebay or instagram would help in attracting buyers.

Now I myself would not be in a financial situation to do so but if you can swing it I think this is very sound advice.

My option would be to grab a older unnumbered shovel frame and move as much of the original parts as I could. I had one here in Atlanta for several years but sold it while doing spring cleaning last month. It was a 68 or 69 with all the tabs. If I still had it, I'd give it to you complete with swingarm, shocks, 3.5 tanks and whatever else I could find in the garage of lost dreams. I hate when good people get into these situations.
Regards,
Hank

I stand corrected. The newest if the two Vtwin frames does NOT have numbers on the bullneck.

Thanks, Hank. My friend in NJ has a wishbone frame and 48 springer front end I could borrow. That's still an option just to get the NC title, but since I have some time I was looking for a more permanent solution.

I'll leave my ad on here, Craigs List and Chop Cult until I get back from Daytona next month. Then look into borrowing a frame and front end.

Just change the bars to pull backs - it will do it justice!
