    The frame on a motorcycle isn't the core of the machine like the body of a car with no engine. It's scrap metal without a title and building a bike from a frame is the worst way to do it. It's not...

    I've dealt with military and civilian cops and much prefer the military, even the few dicks I met during my career.

    OP is wise to grind and (unlikely to be needed) reweld if necessary. I'd leave at least 1/8" working clearance. The grind would be tangent to the tubing hence over a pretty small area.

    It's a chopper. What matters is the specific components when it comes time for you to work on it. "History" is pretty irrelevant since HDs and clones are as generic as it gets. Look at the engine...

    It ain't cheap but the Chinesium versions aren't cheap either. I don't see them lasting thirty or forty years like HD switches as they're delicate and the plastic is inferior too.

    Bolting to table is an interesting idea since it turns the table into a very large "chain wrench" that could work with bare shafts too.

    Full swap including rotor is a good way to begin with a clean slate (magnet adhesive weakens with age).

    Silicon dielectric grease (any auto store) in the connector will exclude moisture and oil.
