Hi Mike. Yes my chassis is almost complete. The first post in this thread has links to my 2 earlier shovster threads. The second one has my chassis. Its a 1985 ironhead frame. And it does require the backbone to be flattened a bit above the rear head to make the engine fit in there. That and a change to the top engine mount is the minimum required for an (83-85 frame).

Thanks Bill. I did go and visit the other links and am almost finished reading them through. I go through the portion where you were dumpling the frame and were working on the mock up.
I’d like to see what you end up with on the exhaust.
