David Bird does it again with a hardtail rear frame section unlike any other that fits 2004 & Up Harley-Davidson Sportsters. Your stock axle, wheel spacers, axle adjusters, caliper, rotor and pulley all fit right back in place on your new rigid frame! This hardtail section uses your stock front frame section which keeps the stock rake and VIN numbers intact so you do not have to re-title a new manufactured frame. Click here
to check out a pdf of the installation instructions for this Sportster chopper frame.
These hardtails are available in a 2" stretch, 2" drop, or a 4" stretch, 2" drop (only 2" drop is available on this model to keep the rear caliper properly located). The photos below are a 2" stretch, 2" drop hardtails. Constructed of 1-1/4", .120" wall tubing, the same diameter as your stock front frame section for a seamless look.
This hardtail is setup for use with your stock 1" axle and axle adjusters. If your model bike has a 3/4" axle you must obtain stock 1" axle adjusters and the hardtail is supplied with sleeves to go inside.
As always, all work should be completed by an experienced fabricator, and all welding should be done by a certified welder!
A note about pulleys and belts: This frame is designed to work with your stock pulleys, but because these are stretched frames the stock belt will not work. Most people choose to do a chain conversion when hardtailing a belt driven Sporty, but if you decide to keep the belt system you will need to find the appropriate length belt for you model/year/pulley combo. We do not have this information and finding the correct belts for a longer stretch may be difficult.
