Any pics of the axle plates? Square seat tube was a distinct sb&f feature, but their axle plates were distinct too. The neck gussets don’t look sb&f, but resemble jammer, or Poughco…

My .02 looks like parts of a stock frame cut up and used in a ridgid build.
Closer pics of the front and rear engine and trans mounts and bottom of the axle mounts would help.

The square seat tube is unique. Someone said Smith Bros. I was thinking AEE did whole square frames so I’d be tempted to look that way. But who cares? Any shovelhead, panhead, or knuckle should fit it.
That’s the donor you need to look for.
Good luck.

There was a frame company in Chicago in the '70s that also made square tube frames.
Is it AEE I think not '73 was the start of the square swingarms on the oem bikes, and by then AEE was going down hill, Tom and his OL were getting divorced and AEE went to the OL in '74. Add that many key employees leaving and not much inovation happening.

I like this frame a lot. Frome the square swingarm axle adjusters, the stylized fatbob fender, the gentle bends of the frame rails and that up and out neck. A guy could build a beautiful bike from this frame. If that's not you I'm interested in buying it.

It is nice. I got a kick out of the sissy/license plate mount: thoughtful and kind of subdued. The rake looks very near stock, to my eyes. Have you measured/got a guess about it?

Thanks for the pics.

thanks again,I measured the rake to be 35 degrees, with the frame flat on the floor.
