CFL2 frame? Is this the one you're talking about?



That one is made for a standard Evo engine. SHould be able to accommodate an alternator Shovel as well.

The frame below is the CFL1:



That one can accomodate an Evo or alternator Shovel without modifications. It can be made take anything from a Knucklehead, Panhead or generator Shovel if you clearance the downtubes.

Most CFL2's were built with 6-speed gearboxes, but should be able to take 5-speed as well. The CFL1's were also 6 or 5, but there have been a few older-style builds that took a 4-speed.

Generator Shovelhead, also known as a "Slabside" Shovel.



Alternator Shovelhead, also known as a "Cone" Shovel.



But most guys run an Evolution:



Which has the same bottom end as the alternator Shovel...
