Default Drop seat frame conversion pieces?

a while back,I saw someone advertising pieces to convert a shovel or later pan swing-arm frame to a drop seat style...as was used from 58-64...I thought it was here but when I searched the archive,I found nothing...Anyone familiar with this,or heard anything about it.....?..

Wasco Frame up in Washington had them listed on their old website but the drop seat castings do not appear on their new site anymore.
Maybe you can give them a call Rick.

In The Horse magazine #126, Jan 2013, Fab kevin goes through fixing a botched drop link conversion. If you can get the back issue it's probably worth your while reading it.

Try Hardtail Choppers. Believe they make a drop seat casting as well:

image1 on here used their hardtail axle plates for his shovel longbike build and was stoked on their quality.

John at Hardtail Choppers definitely has just the castings, which are really nice. But, Jeff Cochran does sell a full kit...this what you were looking for?
