    Default '79 Shovel Hardtail questions...hardtail stock or aftermarket frame

    So I'm working on one of my first big projects and i'd like to get your guys opinion on something. I'm struggling with a decision on whether i'd like to hardtail the stock frame or buy an aftermarket frame. I've been looking at the v-twin replica hardtail kit and doing it myself or sending it out to 47 industries and having those guys do their thing. On the other hand I'm really liking the Flyrite gunslinger frames dimensions and pricing isnt bad either. What are your guys thoughts on this, i understand the benefit of having the numbers with stock frame regardless im still struggling with the decision. Thanks.

    Check out Jeff Cochran at Speedking Racing, he does AMAZING work, he can install one of his dropseat conversions or hardtail it for you for about the same price. He uses his own axle plates and extends the wheelbase about 2" makes for an amazing stance.

    Mike at 47 did a frame for me last year. He was, quick, professional, easy to work with. Frame turned out nice. Just my .02....
