How to build a Street Fighter frame for Evo 120c.i.

Customer wants a softail frame that looks like a street fighter frame. I bend the tubing and place it in the jig to give the customer an idea what the cradle will look like. Customer likes the stance so away we go.

With the wheels in place it is easier to see what the bike will look like when it is finished.

Now we need a swingarm pivot tube machined out to accept stock hairy swingarm bearings. On this frame I am trying to keep the weight down so every part I make is designed to be as light as possible without sacrificing strength.

No seat tube on this frame so the rear motor mount and tranny plate will be on a
strong base and post. Rear motor mount is custom hand tortured (plasma, grinder and vertical mill). I even machined to upright tube so it would be at the right height to the thou-ish.

Front motor mount mount is hand carved with plasma and grinder to give it that
custom look. Holes are drilled with center drill then real drill.

More pics to come. Today is swingarm day.

If you are going to add comments please include a picture of a hot chick. Thanks.
