Hey Bret, Thanks for the kind words. And thanks for being patient through our relocation. I hope you don't mind me throwing this up here. It's not done yet. Still have an ass load of welding to do and have to put in the x-member but I figure it would give an idea of what it'll look like. I'll put more pix up as I get it done. Hopefully be ready to go by the weekend.

Damn that bottom transition is smoooooth!! Now it makes mine look like shit. Damn you.
You ever think about modifying the frame on the older Ironheads under the oil pump so a guy could remove it without taking the motor out? Sure would be cool.

Thanks X. It takes some extra effort to do it that way but I think the end result is worth it. The back bone got a tweak too to get the bump out.

I have to agree with you Mike. Looks so much better done that way. I will probably be hitting you up in October/November when I tear my new to me Ironhead down for the build.

That is one of the cleanest weld on rear ends I've seen for a Sporty. Most look like an after thought but yours looks like it was meant to be there. Good job Mike47!!

Looks good!

Mike is the man! I had him make some bars up for me, top notch. I sure this will turn out great.

Ironlance, Evos are pretty much the same thing as these. This one has a slight adjustment in the backbone to get the lines more pleasing so I'd have to have the fame here to do it. If you want to ship yours out I'll do it.

Here's the done pix (Bret the axle adjuster bungs are on already but not in this pic). Bret can post more if he wants once he has it rolling.
