Tripoli frame

Found this frame on my local Craigslist, made by Tripoli for a rubber mount motor. I couldn't find any info on frame. The price seemed right, new with MSO, $500 CDN , but I don't know how a rubber mount motor would work with a rigid frame and still be rubber mounted. Anybody have any info?

-w/my vision; 'it' just looks like a rubbermount conv. frame ...using a rubbermount for a 'donor bike', but...loosing all the bnefits of a fxr


-one could acheive the same thing w/an aftermarket trans case [ST], and stick your fxr guts in her...your 'rubbered' motor would loose the 'rubbermount system' anyways

-meaning all types of frames avail w/the ST tranny case

-im basing this off the front lower motor mt. in the pic


-maybe john from scooters will chime in

I have one in the shop now, but it's an identical Paughco, and they still make this type frame. Even the uber-trick rear braces. Uses a rubbermount FLT/FXR driveline, sans rubber mounts.

It's only real benefit is the shorter driveline and the direct connection of trans to engine.

Tripoli frame

Thanks for the replies, looks like the only benefit is the shorter engine/trans combo without the seat post on this frame. The link from "tfstrum" looks like jackshaft affair, not sure how it works.

The Paughco/Tripoli frames just use a bolt(since nothing is moving) thru the trans case in the rear and the front bolts down like a softail. No rubber. The one I have in the shop was built from a wreck so it made sense to someone since spare parts is really all they had.

If I had to choose between the long or short driveline to actually rubbermount in xyz chassis, my favorite would be the short, for a variety of reasons that are mainly related to it's shortness, but to each his own and it's a different look I can understand.

Just happened unto this thread. I guess better late than never. I hope your project went on to fruition as I built one of the rigid rubbermount Tripoli frames in 1996. That girl took 1st place at the Boardwalk show in Daytona Beach. 1st springer front end with dual disks. Fastest 80 cu.in. scoot around with 9.5 or 10.5 compression and dual plug heads, (and I tipped the scales at around 250), all Andrews gears and a speed shifter.
(tried to insert image, but I am a newbie... so do not know how yet)
In fact, the only reason I saw this thread is because I am trying to CPR this girl and the battery has gone away and I cannot remember what size battery works in the Tripoli oil tank. If anybody knows, I would appreciate a hand up.
Be safe... Rubber side down!
