Kraft/Tech Sportster Rigid Frame.

Not sure why, but I get many requests of recommendation for a clean after-market rigid Sportster frame. Drifting to the old school style? Big amount of used Sportsters on the market at a cheap price?

Since you want to know one that I like (among others), this one accepting up to a 180 mm rear tire. In it you can cradle a Sportster engines from 1986 to 2003. It’s TIG-MIG welded from 1 1/4″ tubing   and available with neck rakes of 30 or 34-degree and up-stretches from 0″ to 4″ if you go the chopper route. One draw back for some, you can’t buy the frame alone, but the complete accessories kit. Kraft/Tech.

    I have no relationship with them but Acme Choppers makes a great looptail sportster frame

    Doesn’t Drag Specialties carry these now? Thought I read that somewhere.

    My bobber has a KT frame. Solid welds rides straight. I like it so much I got a second one for a second build. 36 rake, 3 inch backbone stretch and wide enough for a 200 tire.

    I’ve run a Kraftech rigid frame for over 6 years now and it’s held up great. I’ve also built 3 other bikes with their frames and all have performed very well.

    Great frames at a reasonable price.

    I built a bobber using one of these frames, it worked great. I put a Buell engine in it, was the easest bike I ever built. I got my frame from Biker’s Choice, was just a frame with rear axle and spacer. Put it on the road for less than $5000.

    I bought an Indepenance Hardtail Express that i ended up rebuilding, chopping, etc. but as it turns out, it was a Kraft Tech frame…… no complaints. It was straight, well designed, good welds and made for a good platform for my new build….. some people slam KT, but they are well made. You could do worse…. much, much worse! I would buy another frame from Kraft Tech in a heartbeat!

    A little known fact as well is that Kraftech makes all the frames for Sucker Punch.

    I used a Kraft Tec for my Evo Bobber (Love Monkey) and it worked out great.
