Instead, DAYTEC owner hooked me with their Episode frame, rubber mounted and with dyna style swing arm and shocks. It accepted softail trany and primary due to softail distance between motor and trany.
Great setup. By the way. DAYTEC was making frames for exile cycles.
That looks good, but I'm going to keep stock rake and frame length. To run softail setup, the transmission and engine setup is different, and also looks different than an FXR. There are some open primary options, but few as pointed out. Might have to piece together parts that will fit in the end. I may have Paugcho make me a frame like I want and run a softail setup. It's cheating, but might be easier in the end
