    Default My 2000 sporty project (first real build attempt)

    Hey guys fairly new to the chopcult, I’m from Alberta Canada and will probably have lots of stupid questions haha. It’s so great to see everyone’s visions coming to life! Here is my progress so far, including my home made table CHEERS!Click image for larger version.

    I'm looking forward to this build. Do you already have the hardtail and if so how well do the slugs fit the frame? I gave the MotoIron hardtail from TC Bros a go and although it was a stout unit with nice welds there were a few things that were a disappointment like the slugs. I felt they had too much slop in them and didn't fit the frame tubing tight enough for my tastes which is what I usually point out to pontential buyers. When I did my own hardtails decades ago I made sure that the frame slugs were a tight enough fit to need a little coaxing with a rawhide mallet.

    Thanks and yeah I do have the frame, and yeah it fits nice and snug! I’ll have to spread the hardtail rails a little as there is a brace about 1” from the lower cuts and it won’t move with a clamp

ID:	110707Anyone have ideas for this front bolt on a lowbrow hardtail? I know I can cut it but I think the spring travel will still cause it to hit...��

    I ran into the same problem with my Tc hardtail and biltwell seat. I opted for a different seat as I didnt like the fit. I did initially cut the bolt but it still would make slight contact with the frame.

    Really? That sucks, what did you decide on for the seat?

    I went with a tc bros cobra seat. Ita pretty comfortable for what it is. If I had more patience I would have just made one . You can see my build on here. 1993 sportster

    The main objection to seats hitting is scratched paint, but you could add two bump stops with small pucks or whatever ya like to positively limit seat travel.

    Looks good so far. Welding the bracket was the way to go.
