Frame choice for bike build..

I'm looking into building a Harley styled touring motorcycle and I don't have enough knowledge about what kind of frame I should be looking for. Any help would be nice

And any answer will require more info from you.
Like what motor for instance.

And why not just buy one of the dozens of "Harley Styled Touers " that exsist ?

If you don't have enough knowledge about the kind of frame you need for this project, I'm thinking that you probably lack the knowledge of mechanics, electrical, welding/fabrication, paint, etc to see this project through to completion.


Even the simplest kit bike is far more complicated to build than most people realize.

for starters, you should probably ask on a different forum than this one. like maybe chop cult.

When ready, we'll move this thread to the Some Assembly Required forum.
