    Wanted to Borrow a Rib Spreader to Fit Big Motor into my TW

    Anybody got a rib spreader or heavy duty shoe horn I can borrow I want to see if this motor will fit in my TW ?

    Just kidding of course I picked up a Pan Head project bike and a Cota 4RT Trials bike in trade for a nice trailer I had and I noticed the Harley frame has what I'm sure is a fake 1 ounce gold bar bonded to the rear of the frame and I was wondering if anybody knows what brand the frame might be?

    I plan to keep the S&S 93" Pan and Andrews geared 4 speed tranny and sell the rolling frame (clear CA title)

    Might sell the whole bike but many years ago in a chopper magazine I saw a bike called the "Kentucky Boss" ultra low seat fatty rear tire short tube forks , drag bars and fat front tire all very low wide and compact still the coolest custom HD bike I've ever seen

    You sure do pick up some cool stuff!

    What's with that filler neck on the gas tank? It hurts me just looking at it!

    Think maybe you could work that rear disc/caliper into one of your swingarm extensions?

    it's a very cool rear disc for sure but it's fairly small I'm not sure if it's enough for daily TW riding but then again small is light and out of the way that might be a good thing

    The peanut tank is horrific I know, not sure whose idea that was lol

    Fred you sure know how to find some cool bikes. No idea what frame that is. Did you ride it? The fact that the front doesn’t have a crazy rake is a plus. Always liked the beachcomber style bars.

    Yes the tank sucks I think I'll pull that and sell it separately

    If you put literally any other style tank on there the bike is actually pretty cool
