I bought an 1996 evo frame. The rear and lower front motor mount work. I made a top mount from an ironhead mount and the evo mount. I have pics posted on this discussion. I am running a sealed bearing hub. Using stock spacers and a flat rear sprocket.

I didn’t see the point of this bike when I saw the header, but it looks good!

I enjoy seeing builds like this, great work. Really like the overall look of this bike, everything goes together just right, great work.

I think the newer frame is a much better choice (stiffer/stronger).

i'm thinking the new motor isn't so bad either.
