SELF INTRODUCTION: I worked on, bikes since I was 14, I progressed to cars when I hit the age of 16, now at 52 I find bikes more rewarding to build and with less space now to store my toys ( 3rd house, also the smallest garage) I use parts from anything that I can find to fit, my builds and am rapidly becoming a decent tig welder. Still I dont know everything and find it expensive to build from a catalog. so that is why I am here for the second time.

I got a hacked frame and a couple of wheels and motor for a couple of bucks and it needs a hard tail, b/c of a bad hack job. this frame has a removable right hand side lower engine cradle. I would like to know if anyone else has done a hard tail on this type of a bike ? :think:

For me anyways, I've always felt that the dohc's looked better on a total custom frame,
There's so much to remove from a stock frame to even get close to looking good it's
insane to try and save much more than the neck and numbers. But hey, to each his own.
Here's a pic of a good looking dohc chop. In my eye anyways.

Found on the The Horse website. It refers to SOHC hondas so I'm not sure if it'll be any help but it won't hurt look

SELF INTRODUCTION: Long time rider and builder. Bikes have included Harley, Triumph, Enfield and a host of rice grinders. Current build is a stroked Yanmar diesel fired hard tail utilizing parts of a SOHC 750 Honda frame. Enhanced a bit with an Aisin supercharger and propane fumigation. Girder forks and Royal Enfield 5 speed gearbox. Problem is, this build keeps getting interrupted by helping my son with his builds. But that whole father-son thing makes it worth the distraction.

New to the board and couldn't resist the opportunity to respond to this one. My son and I did a DOHC last winter. My role was largely as consultant while he did most of the fabrication. I think he did a great job for being a college age kid. Not quite as easy as doing a SOHC hardtail, but still not very difficult al all. It was done without a jig but be prepared to wear out your measuring tools. Came out dead straight. He rode it out of the shop the night he finished it and it's run flawlessly every since. Not bad for his first major build. I wish I could say the same for my projects.
A few pics were posted over on the Bikermetric blog and those links are below. If you need more details, let me know. And since we're encouraged to list our locations, I'm in north central Indiana.

SELF INTRODUCTION: I was on the last board as bonustoolkit. I have changed that to my given name.
I started a project build there " File and Fit." I paln to continue that when I go back home in Dec. 2011. I first joined the board when Gary W had it in the year 2005. That was the time I really gained an interest in building chops. I have a long way to go, compared to some here.

I just returned home from a 2 week trip in New Mexico, have a few good pix, can't wait to share my off-highway traveling. Got to put 1400 miles on the scoot.

It will be made by these plans .... if it needs to be different or holes deleted, I need to know, or i can make it and you can add your on holes...I have a turrent punch so it is easy for me ....think I have some thin stainless that you can polish up nicely..... don't know how to price this , my labor is $60 per hr , but we can knock some down.... mild steel is quicker as I just mig it together....Stainless I can fold and spot weld ...tig unit is not working at the moment , but I can have it done ...not that much welding...let me know !

like the plans is just fine, I don't have anything but the motor and carbs.
Well, some parts here and there, but no frame or numbers. This will be another part I've collected.
