Don't have the bike yet but got a line one one for a pretty good price. I am 6 hours north of Dallas 9 hours from Austin, is there anyone in Texas I can take it to that can put the hartail on or...should I just go with a paughco and get a new title for it....

thanks guys

Why don't you just order a frame from Flyrite?

The Flyrite frame kicks ass. But it only fits an Evo Sporty unmodified. You can get a bolt-on or weld-on from J&P and keep your frame numbers also.

KK hardtail will work with a chain or a belt. he says that a softail belt will work but that's not true. a softail belt is wider than your stock belt and won't work with sportster pulleys. you need about a 136 tooth sportster belt or switch to chain. you also need softail stayle axle adjusters which you can get at bitterend choppers if you can't make em yourself or design your own. you'll prolly need a slightly longer brake line and you'll need to figure out a way to stabalize your rear caliper as on stock bikes it fits around the swingarm. i'm doing mine over the winter and these are the things i've learned so far. by the way, it's a pretty nice peice.

did you weld it on yourself, did you have any alignment probs and are you staying with the belt. I built a little hartsil trump so I am kinda familiar with putting a hartail on a stock frame and a have some dab skills and a nice welder so it sounds like I can do this myself witch great being a poor boy and all. you got any pic of yours?

thanks man
