    Looks like a great start. You gonna be building it?
    Is that a shipping sticker wrapped around the frame? Is that the engine in the crate?
    According to the Paughco catalog, frame fits '86-'03, has a 30* rake and a 2 1/4" up stretch:

    What the owner wants me to do is install the oil tank, weld in the gas tank & seat bungs ...

    Mounting the oil tank and battery box looks kinda weak with how Paughco designed the mounts...
    I see a problems with those mounts... He wants to weld the removable mounts to the frame.
    The problem is the lower mount on the battery box bolts to the primary cover... Need the motor bolted in the frame to locate the oil tank mounts to weld on...

    That brings us to another problem ... He has no motor just yet....

    Oh lawd. Might be best to weld what ya can without the engine, get paid, then have him cart it off until he shows up with an engine, if ever.

    I bet he's got no plan to title the thing either.

    How come he doesn't have a go motor fer it?

    Are you really going to install a chain drive from a 10 speed bycyle and make a heavy but kick ass bike to pedal around the campgrounds?

    He said that he was building it up as a roller and was going to sell it as is ...

    Old boy has a few bikes that is running .... One of his bikes that's not running is a 60 Pan that he got T-boned on some 25 years ago... Tore it up pretty good and didn't do him any good ....
    He's wanting to get it back on the road ...

    I mad mounting tabs off the seat post for my oil bag to bolt to, same bag, but in a s120 frame and 68 ironhead. Also your going to want that oil bag all the way up to the frame tube for the motor to fit in as well, then put your battery between the rear wheel and seat post, theres a nice open area there

    I like your idea of mounting the batt in the open spot a lot better than what Paughco had in mind with their 121 oil tank and 121B battery tray .. (Made to fit a FXE Battery)

    If the battery was back there... Their 746SP warp around oil tank might look better than the 121 tank ...



    .../// http://www.chopcult.com/forum/showthread.php?t=36298 \\\...

    The above thread has good photos of the FXE Battery in use...

    Being whatever motor will be going in this frame, it will be a ele. start and the FXE Battery does have the grunt to spin even a big inch engine over with ease...
