X-Line Rigid Sportster Frame

Twin brothers Eddie and Ronnie started “Unknown Choppers” (slogan is “We’ve never heard of you, either”) hand building in their own shop a variety of frames all made out of 1.25″ DOM tubing, TIG welded and delivered with MSO.

Example is this nice looking X-Line rigid Sportster Chopper frame with 40-degree rake. But since all frames are made to order, you can choose options regarding rake and stretch. Made in the USA. Starting at $1500. Unknown Choppers.

    Nice. Like how the backbone joins the frame neck.

    The bummer about a beautiful frame like this is so much of that gets covered up with stuff that hides the art. Done properly, a fair amount of frame still shows, and the parts added, whether fabbed or bought, adopt some of that curve.

    Cant’ wait to see one of these with parts on it.

    RUPERT!!!!!!! How ya been?
    Agreed, Rob-I’d like to see a finished one with that frame showing. A little filler action at the front tubes and it’d look great with a tank that shows it off.

    Frame looks good, but where is the top and front upper motor mount? Are there some bolt on brackets that aren’t shown?

    Wow. A rigid frame. How original.
    Not.

    Mamba, the front mounts looks to be incorporated into the frame already. No need for extra ones. It looks to be for a pre 2004 XL, and should accept the front of the motor quite handily. As for the top mount – who knows” Airbrushed out for whatever reason? The is an odd spot under the backbone near the top of the radius where the shadow is briefly interrupted. Maybe that’s from editing the image or perhaps that’s where you weld your own top mount of choice in.

    Waldo, you don’t see the “X” shape at the neck? Yeah, I guess you see those everywhere…

    Whether you are impressed with the frame or not is immaterial …. you have the be impressed with their tag line: “We’ve never heard of you either” …. I know I am!

    Over & Out,

    I’ve been down to their shop a couple of times and they do some great stuff.
    Two really nice guys with multiple precision jigs and a great attitude.
    I think I’ll start saving some cash for one.

    Haha – I agree with Jeff! That’s a pretty impressive slogan “we’ve never heard of you either”….love it!
