Well I recieved my weld-on hardtail section for my 72 OIF today from British Cycle Supply. I ordered through them as they were the only semi-reputable dealer that offered one. After doing a little mock-up I find that it is only about 1" over stock, maybe a little smidge more! From my measurements I don't even think I can put a solo seat on it without rubbing on my tire! I am probably going to return it and just eat the shipping costs. Anyone have any suggestions??? Anyone here willing or know anyone willing to fab one up for me. I would rather pay someone a little extra to get what I want and at good quality as I dont have the equipment/skills to fab one up myself. I see triumphwizard on egay has a 4" over one but I have heard nothing but bad stories about his hardtails. Any insight would be appreciated.
