UL stroker in VL
it take quite a bit of fabrication and work to make a later big twin to fit into a VL frame. Motor mounts have to go up and holes need to be moved over. The transmission needs to be "groomed" to fit inside the VL trans cradle. This particular frame had a overhead valve motor in it so they took the top frame gusset out. Once i get my tanks finished i will be putting a gussett back in. I still have to make an exhaust and mount the tanks, then the fab is basically done. The oil tank is a stock Horshoe that Mullins Chaindrive narrowed two inches for me and then since im running a Magneto i dont need the battery hole so that was filled in as well. I can not say enough good things about Brandon over at Mullins. He does an unbelievebale job with metal and he is very reasonabley priced.
