Default Custom Drop Seat 200 Tire

I don't know what you guys do here, (I'm new) but I'm into bending my own. Every part I can make within reason, I'll be making. I started this build a few weeks ago working on it here and there. I've still got work to do on the frame but will be into the sheet metal soon enough..
I've got a 1999 883 as a donner. I'm doing like a 3" stretch in the back bone and -2" in the downtubes. I'm running 38 degrees of neck rake, a 200 rear tire. I've got a real low seat hieght, I think about 20" but can't really remember. John
