Was sniffing thru kijiji last night and came upon an add for a 1980 fx frame with alberta registration, so I emailed the dude and we talked this morning. He sent me a few photos, and she looks like a winner so I scooped that bitch up. So I gotta go and pick it up this week sometime over just south of calgary.

Was thinking about your frame quest yesterday.My indy informed me that he had just bought a "container" of parts including a couple hardtail frames and a Revtech tranny.Sounds like a rag and handcleaner day at the indy's for me.

Just scored a nice frame Empty Weld on

Post  coopsta on Thu Dec 06, 2012 7:45 pm

Well Sunny I will be using this frame for a weld on project for sure, and once I get the frame if its as easy as I think to get it registered in my name I certainly think it will fit the bill. I just believe if you are going to "build" a 60-70's era long fork chopper we have to do it from scratch. I have some reservations about cutting the neck to get approx 38-40 degrees but it has to be done so be it.
Its funny ya know you have a plan and you put it out there to the universe and you end up getting back what you want, maybe not exactly what you want but close. I called this guy this morning and he said he had 12 guys respond to that add by this morning, I said I would send him some dough asap to hold it until I could hook up with him, after we chatted for a bit he asked why I wanted the frame, I told him my plans and he said well don't worry bout it I will hold the frame for you and pull the add from kijiji. I thought that was cool.
I still want to get a paughco frame ass well so I am not 100% sure what is going to be what.

Back to my cooky put it out there positive thinking stuff, so this afternoon a guy I know who has this 80 FLHS shovel shows up at the shop this afternoon. He really likes old bikes, but just doesn't have the patience to work on them. He says hey if I want to sell my bike would you be interested? Can you say donor bike? He wants 5k but the bike is in need of some serious loving. He paid way to much but the bike has some really nice peices and now he wants to get an evo, so maybe I can pry the shovel out of his hands for 3500 bucks or something.

Hammer ,The parts won't be ready for pawin through til probably Wednesday next.I want to take my camera to get shots of the interesting parts and the frames.Could be a decently priced score if there's enough of a haul worth having.I always get a good deal from Jack,my indy,when I've got a pile that I want (new or used) and cash is even a better price for me.
