Fabkevin sent me a before and after shot of my 4 speed frame getting done.....

First shot is of the frame after being cut down in the jig.

And the finished product, well rough finished, he still has a bit of grinding to do but that is basically her!!

 I don't know why but if I try and add the image to this page it cuts off the right half of all my photos so I am just putting photobucket links up so you get to see the whole thing?

Got some Porn for you guys to look at if you like Hardtail frames Empty Not the cheapest way lol

Ya koot not at all, price depends a bit on the frame, up to early 80's frames its around a grand, and just a bit more for the later 80's because of that extra plate they started welding around the down tube on the top of the frame.  Just a bit more cause of the dinking around he has to do with the plate.  I certainly could have saved a bit getting an aftermarket frame I think but if you wanted to hardtail your frame with a current VIN its the only way to go without any registry bullshit.  Then you don't have to worry about inspections or fack all.....just get the frame back and start building.

 Once she is together your on the road.  I have paper for this frame so that is why I went this route.

 I think I will probably end up with a few registry hassles with this particular 4 spd frame I just got done at Kevins because the paper work says its just for the frame but we will see.  

 I wanted a trial run for sending a frame down south, getting it to FabKevin and done then getting it back here.  I would rather have this frame get laid up at the border, or whatever issues to arise with a frame I really didn't have much tied up with if ya know what I mean.  So far it made 2/3 of the journey and just has to make it home for this to be a big success!!!

 The border fucks still have a chance to screw me over but hope not.  They stung me for 50 bucks sending the frame down there even though I prepaid all shipping and fees thru purolater.

Like I said there is probably cheaper ways to go but Kevin is a master at the modification of these 4 spd frames, its far superior to a bolt on or weld on kit without a doubt and you know what you are getting. Seems like purchasing frames it sounds like its a crapshoot and we end up well into the 1500 to 2000 dollar range getting a decent frame up here anyway unless you luck out. I know what I am going to end up with once she gets back, have never heard one complaint about any of Kev's work and its a pretty cool frame once completed....

Well I am not really sure of that just yet. I want to get her home and get some wheels and a fork on her to see what and where. I did talk to kevin about doing a bit of rake but he is swamped and had no time to add it in to the job. I was thinking around 38* but I need to see how she sits with the hardtail job first before I make any other mods.
