    David Bird has put much time and thought into the Harley-Davidson Sportster bolt-on hardtail that fits 1979 - 1981. The beauty of this hardtail is it is a true bolt on (you can always weld it up as well if you like), but it doesn't utilize the shock mounts to bolt to like all the other Sporty hardtails available elsewhere. This gives a killer profile and stance and you don't get the weird angles that come with using the stock shock mounts. These hardtails use your stock rear wheel, axle and wheel spacers. Please note you CANNOT use your stock caliper bracket and caliper, a stock H-D caliper and bracket from a 1987 - 1999 will be needed. All necessary mounting hardware is included, as well as a new set of axle adjusters, and these hardtails and all the hardware are 100% Made in the USA!

    To see how easy it is to install one of these beauties, check out the tech tip below.

    These are available with your choice of either the looped or straight rear frame rails at the axle (see photos below for examples), and are available in 2", 4", and 6" stretch. You can also choose 1", 2", 3" or 4" of drop. The photos below of both straight and looped style are 4" stretch, 2" drop hardtails. The roller has a stock length front end on it.

    For more information and frequently asked questions about our custom frames and hardtails, please check out the Frame FAQ.

    These are custom made-to-order and currently take approximately 8-12 weeks to complete and ship. You will be charged the shipping at the time of purchase, and when your frame ships we will email over your tracking info.

    NOTE TO AUSTRALIAN CUSTOMERS: If you are in Australia be sure to read the frame FAQ, due to your country's customs laws all frames ship freight and there will be additional charges in addition to the shipping shown during checkout.

    This is a great... Review by Ezra
    This is a great part for a garage built ironhead. I got the 4" stretch with a 2" drop, looped end. I was able to hack apart my frame with confidence as this rear end came laser straight out of the box. Know that the donor caliper you'll need is for a 1987 - 1999 Sporty. (Posted on 6/2/2014)

    Looks bitchin,... Review by Rich Fleming
    Looks bitchin, awesome lines, easy to install. It showed up at my place a little less than 4 weeks after I ordered it, well worth the wait. This hardtail is made specifically for the person that orders it, it's not pulled off a shelf. Which I like. The only bad thing is that is if you spend 20$ on a shirt you get some free swag,(stickers and a pin, is what I got) if you spend 400$ on a hardtail you don't get anything besides what you ordered. Not a big deal, just thought it was kinda backwards. (Posted on 8/24/2013)
