Default Frame mods

Picked up a 84 IH. Having a time finding aftermarket frame or an idea of how to add rake and some up and out. Plan on keeping the swing arm, and using a springer front end. As for now something in the 38-40 degree rake and 4 up and 2 out. all help app.

Find CLEAR photos of setups you like then post the best. It will be easy for others to tell you how they were done. Title passes with frame on your year so you might prefer to mod the stock frame for least hassle. There's plenty of info on the internet. Spend a few days learning how to find things in the chopper world. You'll be MUCH more capable than if you need spoon feeding.

If you aren't prepared to buy a quality springer, a springer may not be a brilliant idea.

IH rear suspension is sufficiently poor due to geometry you might consider a hardtail.
