Remember to get the title to the new frame, because frame = title.
Now you have a different bike.

Thanks people!
I figured it would fit in all the rigid evo frames, just wondered if there was any slight differences in the cases which might make things incompatible. Didn't know about the late iron heads. Gotta love Harley and their long model runs!

Problem is, In order to put a 5-speed into a 4-speed frame you Must relocate the side stand mount... it is in the Way...so, Not a Drop In...

Heed the "Title Advice", ... around here... or at almost any rally, you can get in Trouble...and loose yer Bike!!!!!

Will a 1974 ironhead fit into a newer evo or newer frame I'm trying to find a drag frame for a 74 ironhead and it would be easier to find than a old frame

What is the point of putting a 5-speed engine in a 4-speed frame? I see flat track bikes like that ... is it just to get the improved 5-speed engine in an earlier bike?

'82-5 bikes have the resale value of a used baloney sandwich, especially with a bad engine.

5 speed engines have a better transmission, and more importantly, don't have the aborted-thalydomide-fetus piece of engineering known as the 'clutchernator' (the 4 speed holds up to indefinite mellow usage, the clutch mounted alternator will frag from mere usage when the bearings wear, and the basket gets a little wobble)

If you've already got one of the pieces, getting the other might be a good game plan

Assuming there's a title with the early frame 😁

That makes sense on a number of levels, because it means the racing bike gets the lighter clutch and better engine.

I have a flat track bike like that.
