I bought a frame of a 450 CB and i have a 350 CB motor i would like to make a rigid frame with.

I would like to make a chopper like this.

I want to know if someone else had use a hardtail of a triumph to put on the CB 450 frame ?

Do you think that the measures are the same ?

You could very much modify any weld in hardtail, but to get the geometry correct you may want to employ a fab guru to help with the mods as you will be changing the entire aft section of the frame, I would buy a weld in from David Bird or someone like that and maybe ask some questions, find someone who welds and does steel fab work and you should be good.

Tc bros has an awesome universal hardtail kit. Works great. If you want to go that way.

I can't offer any real advice on your specific question. However in general, I think I'd do the TC Bro's kit too. Trying to make something work where it don't belong is always harder and more expensive in the long run than building what you need in the first place.

Thanks for your answer I see that someone talking that better to use a hardtail of a 650 xs because the frame of cb looks like of the xs.

There is a hardtail to sell on mykes.xs perhaps it's better to looks if the size is the same with the two frame.

Just one think the i don't like the end of the hardtail , just the low part of the hardtail , a picture is better

The frame of voodoo vintage is the orange draw but i prefer the frame like the chopper .
