I see you already have your swingarm off.....BUT my plan is to leave the swingarm ON and use that as a guide to true everything...after I get it all cut and shaped proper...and tacked...then I will take/cut off the swingarm.....I hope this is a good plan.........

We've got two frame jigs at my friend Matthew's shop. I built one for my Evo Sportster and Matthew made his for a single loop frame for a stroker Ironhead motor. I'll get some pics for you on Wednesday.

That is exactly how I did mine Worked out great to use the swing arm as a jig Las week end I did 70 for about 10 miles with my hands off the bars runs straight as an arrow.
I took my swing arm off cut and lenghened it 2 inches and then put it back on with the front end and wheels then blocked up the frame till I had the stance I was looking for then welded everything up around it and then cut the sissybar out when I was all finished. the only thing I may have done diffrent is strech the swing arm another inch or two more, a tad more room for fender and oil tank ect. Something i did not take into acount and had a heck of a time finding a oil tank to fit.
