Default 82 ironhead

i want to build a bobber out of my 82 seems no buddie makes a 82-85 rigid frame just wanting to know if the rear mount is in the right place and i just have to fab the front and top mount or do i need to cut all the mounts and start from scratch ,
and if i had to start from scratch woud it be a good idea to use the evo frame ,

if i was to put the iron in an evo frame is the rear mount in the right place and will the motor fit in the frame just need to make front mounts or is it a waste of sweat thanks sam

If it ain't broke, don't fix it (especially if you don't know what you're doing). Most Sportster problems are owner-induced.

Kansas Kustom will make you a hardtail section so you can keep the stock frame and not have to worry about Title issues. You can get more info here:
