View Full Version : Rigid Frame Quesion
28th December 2005, 18:27
I was looking for a rigid frame for my 2002 sporty power plant. Just wondering... will my late model motor fit early Sporty frame motor mounts? I know the mechanical brake mount won't work, just concerned about the motor.
The reason why I am asking is because I like the Santee frame for the Sporty, but all I have seen for sale are for 57-81 motors. Would my 02 motor fit the motor mounts in this frame?
Comments? Suggestions? Help!!!:smoke

No, it won't work.
Either get a Paughco frame for EVO sportys, or get your stock frame hardtailed.

I really like the Paughco frame. The difference is the bottom frame rails are too close together on the Paughco vs. the santee. Same with the Corbin Gentry frames. It looks to stock to me. Plus, everyone uses the Paughco frame every time I open up the Horse you see a Sporty in a Paughco so I wanted to be a little different, you know? Wish I could make my own damn frame!!!:D

ok, i see what you mean about the frame rails there.. have you checked out Atlas's sporty frame.. they use the big twin style front arms as well..

I love the atlas frame, but it is too pricy! Also, the shape of the frame from the back bone to where you mount the seat takes a curve. I need it to be strait with the rear frame rails like the Santee. Sweet frame though!http://www.atlasprecision.com/catalogimages/18.jpg
