They're starting to trickle out, not a lot to choose from yet, but
there's a lot more than there was a year ago...

I think all of the Atlas frames are soft tails - AFAIK?

Kansas Kustoms is working on a weldon, I don't believe it's ready yet.

LedSled has a weldon, but I believe they require you to have them mount it.
This is the first one they did for Brock over to QCB about a month ago...



Rob over to QCB hardtailed his '04 last winter, but it was done from scratch...

Could the '04+ motor be put into an '03 and earlier frame...if it's solid mounted in? Or are the motor mounts that different?

Here's some closer pics of Brock's (LedSled) frame weldon...



The big thing with the rear motor mount is - you have to compress the rubber
in the cases. You can't leave it open like this...



You'll have to rig up a big old compression washer like this...



You can see the same ring on Rob's here:

Rob and Brock over to QCB are the real experts on these so far. You can email
either of them by clicking on their name on any of their posts on the QCB forum.

Another neat thing that they discovered for rubber mounts...

You do not need to use the big old under seat ignition box, crank angle
sensor, other computers and miles of wiring for the data bus harness. A cam
cover from an '03 sporty will fit perfectly on an '04 - '06 and it will expose the
timing shaft so you can use an in the nose cone ignition module for an '03 or
earlier sporty. You have to use a 2000(01?) to 2003 cam cover though the
earlier ones are missing oil passages for the lifters.

The motor mounts are completely different from the earlier sportys. We did a few frames for them, pain in the ass.

Pat at Led Sled is doing a lot with them though, and his work is very reasonable and top notch.

Good luck.

Later, Paul
