Default '63 Swingarm Pan frame question..

I picked up this 1963 panhead drop seat frame, but the mounts on top are clearly not MoCo, just wondered if anyone had seen anything like this before?

Aftermarket kit that used to be sold in the catalogs years ago, probably still available from V-twin.

Right on, I wonder what the reason would be for it? This frame had those tabs from the factory. Maybe someone chopperized it back in the day and someone on down the line tried to put it back stock?
I've got to cut it off and replace it anyway, as the top is about 1/8" off center of the neck, and that'll drive me crazy. Is there anywhere that sells just the castings/tabs, without the plate that runs along the backbone, so they could be welded on separate to look like factory?

Yep, they were made for frames that had the original pieces removed.

Wasco has frame parts:

I'm just glad to see that I'm not the only person to have worked on a Harley in their bedroom! My wife never did like it when I did that though. Not sure why....

Lol! I built my Triumph in her dining room, told her it would be the last time....oops.😁
She wasn't super happy last night when she got home, the reason it was in the bedroom, was I was torching/scraping bondo off the frame while watching some TV...so needless to say it didnt smell awesome in the bedroom.when she got home.😅

You might check the parts at Hillbilly Vintage Classics, although Richard at Wasco has excellent stuff as well.

Right on my man, I'll definitely do exactly that. Thank you very much for the reference
I got frame gusset ordered from Wasco today (they were alot cheaper than vtwin) as my frame apparently missed the recall, and thus has no gusset welded in on the primary side. Always looking for sources for the real stuff though, so thank you very much for the suggestion, and if you're ever in Nashville, beer is on me.😁👍

Amazing as most of the parts Wasco sells are from V-twin. He even uses parts of the V-twin number as his own order number

Most OEM sell retail at list prices and wholesale discount price to retailers to leave a profit margin for the retailers. Mark up is the choice of the retailer.
