May 4, 2011 . Ironhead Sporty Frame Build
This is what's been keeping me busy lately. Wanted to post as i went along but just got caught up. This is called the "Sancho" frame for Taber at Nash Motorcycles. Originally the Sancho frame was for a shovelhead. This customer wanted it for a Ironhead Sporty so some changes have been made.
These images show some of the construction as it was going together. There are more images if you need to see more. Dropped the neck down a couple inches and stretched the rear end about 2 1/2 ". This will get a custom springer from 3 Guyz in Portland.
Anyone tells you it goes together fast is full of bull. These are not mass produced frames so each component has to be hand made . I love that part . It just always takes longer to complete than I ever anticipate . I keep doing it and I don't know why.
This last image kind of gives you an idea how small and tight this bike will be. Once the frame leave's here today i may not see it again. It goes to a local shop to complete . I will try to get some shots of it before it hits the road . If you have a design for a frame you want build , I will work with you to give you just what you want. Thanks for Tuning in , and we have operators standing by to take your order. (wife) . Remember "If your coasting, your going down hill ". Later, jg
