    Your frame is definitely fixable though man!

    A friend of mine's straight leg was in a similar circumstance. It's now back and operational with his panhead. Not ideal, but I hope you choose to get her fixed.

    Have you noticed any damage to the engine? are the cases and the like all in good order?

    Yeah, I'll get it fixed eventually. Maybe find a donor frame with a good front half someday.

    Engine looks good from what I can tell, thank God. It was tough to get the motor mount bolts out, but no cracks in the cases.

    That front end can be straightened! there's people more than skilled enough to bring that back to life!

    Ah that's great news, with an impact like that I always worry the front of the cases will go! look forward to see her fixed up!

    Hang in there Jake, the new frames are pretty damn amazing and worth the coin. I am futzing around with a "new" dash for the fat bobs I had in the attic. Once I get that in place this build will go really fast.

    Since that appears to be a late 47 frame, it's worth holding on to.

    Bump! I sent you a message on FB, too. I'd like to get moving on this ASAP! Thanks!

    I'm ready ...

    The frame that you want will be bone stock for the 1947 year model ...
    Will be shipped from Sweden to your door, that bad-boy is an exact copy of the Mo-Co yesteryears frame..

    $2700 including shipping costs ...
    The wheel will run $450 and most likely around $50 to ship, it's a good size box ..

    No, but normally he does do the Edlund Knuckle neck.
    It’s looks like a 28 degrees neck but will have 30 degrees.




    We made it because everyone wanted 30* but no bull neck ....

    Default Could do a "Wild" restore to your Old Fork

    A bit of Slice & Dice using some of the pieces from the og springer will net you this ...





    Narrowed and Extended ....

    I call it ... "Keeping it in the Family"
    (Well, some of it anyways)

    BTW: The wheels are in motion ....

    There is available a Mini drum that is after/market, but unfortunately is mostly only a hill holder ...





    And there also is a 10"disc brake unit that works much better than the stock springer drum brake does ...



    Both will fit the narrowed springer ....

    If you was after a more nostalgia look keeping Harley parts from yesteryear in play ...



    Got room for the 72 and back Sportie drum brake ....
