Replacing Sidecar Loops

I've had the crap frame for 3-4 years. Someone took a drop seat pan frame and hard tailed it using the back half of an early rigid pan frame. Why they didn't just use the rigid pan frame to begin with is anyones guess?? So it was straight enough but the front motor mount holes were hogged out to nearly 1/2 in to get the motor to bolt down and the front cradle was rounded tubing (swing arm style) instead of rigid straight or wishbone legs. My buddy Kevin had a set of straight leg loops in a  rusty pile of frame bits so I bought em from him. I needed a new front motor mount as well. I was going to get one from VCP but ended up finding a better deal elsewhere. Tossed the frame up in Charlie's frame jig. Bolted a set of cases into the rear mounts and got to cuttin' up Everything went pretty smooth and it really wasn't the hassle I thought it would be. In the end, I've got a pretty accurate looking straight leg frame which is perfectly plum and ready for finishing. Here's a little pic of the front legs. I still haven't finished filling but that shouldn't be more than 1 or 2 sittings. If you have a hard tailed shovelhead frame, I would highly recommend a front loop swap. The rigid look is a little closer to accurate and the cost was minimal. bike2 Dig it.

Progressive International Motorcycle Show, Feb 2020

The only motorcycle event I attended in 2020 was the Progressive International Motorcycle Show .  It's fun to see new models in person, including a prototype for the Pan America.  There's usually some custom and vintage bikes at the show too.  For 2021, the show converted to an outdoor event and is skipping Minneapolis this year.  Hopefully it'll be back next year as it's usually a fun indoor winter event.
