New build with a 58 Frame

Starting this new build and wondering how hard it is to mod the frame to fit an evo motor. I would like to stuff a Shovel in it but they are a little harder to come by.

I think the motors mount up the same way, but I could be wrong.

Evos wont fit into old 4 speed frames without major mods. Its been done, but in your case, that 58 swingarm looks pretty original and would be a shame to it hack up. 5 speed also wont fit in stock form. Ive include a photo of a 99 Softain case I had machined and welded to fit into my 84 FLH stoker shovel project. Note the cutout for the swing arm pivot. I also will have to build a steel bracket to support the inner primary since the mounting holes are gone. Other than that, the last pic looks pretty cool in its current state of build. Look forward to seeing more.
