Chopper guys makes a Swedish style fxr frame thats pretty cool. My bike is a Kenny Boyce FXR but I do not think they offer it any longer. Also Maximum Metalworks offers a FXR style frame. The picture below is a 240 chopper guys fxr. Your drivetrain will fit in either a FXR or a FLT frame as a direct bolt in.

Marc Rowe, out of NH, offers a FXR style frame that is kick ass. Not sure he offers it in a rigid format though.

A google search would probably get that info.

Wondering what would happen with a rubber mounted engine/tranny combo rockin' and rollin' up/down/side-to-side, but the rear wheel sprocket not tracking the tranny sprocket? Seems like it would cause a lot of wear on chain/belt/sprocket/pulley.

-ive got 5yrs and 40, miles on a k.boyce frame w/rear o-ring...still good shape

-used frames are kinda scary but maybe eprey for a k.boyce

-kinda a sin to not at least try the rubbermoumt system out on a hi-hp/low wght bike

-daytec/skulker...atlas i beleve too

-then there was a softail rubbermount frame but have never heard of its success [surgical steeds/ rubbertail/ mono-glide/ where its names]

-the last i heard, [of the rubbertail], kuryakn sold it to daytec

-one can always 'solid-strut' the frame...like HD and the marlboro man...hehe

-best of luck w/your build guy

I've got a 1993 Marc Rowe fxr frame bike. It was built by a friend that worked with custom chrome. He put a revtech 100" motor in it, it was strictly a show bike for 5-6 years and then stored away. When I hit@700 miles total, the crank split in half at a red light . Me, waiting for green light and like a light switch, off! No knock, no imbalance just like turning the key off! So I stashed it downtown in a parked it. After saving 3 months I found a Ultima 127" "El Bruto" and now it's a monster. At 1,200 miles I twisted the front primary pulley out of it. Once I found a good 48 BDL 2" for her. But befor the parts arrived it was stolen! Recently I found out who had it and with Leroy (my Machete), dude was more than happy to return it and ,he even gave me a hand! There are repercussions for your action. I went full on Middle East eye for an eye on his ass! We'll right now I'm trying to figure out how to rewire the ignition switch he took off , didn't label anything so today I'm chasing wires. He also stole my battery, and my performance machine air cleaner! Ass! The entire bike is PM. Anyone with a spare PM 90 degree air cleaner help me!

so...from what I understand you want to put your FLH Motors and Trans into a Rigid, I dont see why you cant swap it over or just convert your FLH into a Rigid.

I know a few of the guys on here have done it.
