Pre Fab Rear Sub-Frame

Post by duckytran » Mon Jan 15, 2018 4:57 pm

I just purchased an 81' R65. Does anyone in the U.S make and sell bolt on rear sub-frame (dual shocks)? I've only been able to find sellers out of Europe.

Airhead Salvage outside of Austin, TX? Repsycle in Ohio?

Best two sources I know of.

Buying off of ebay or craigslist might get you a bent one.

Thanks for the quick reply. However, I need to clarify. I'm looking for a custom sub-frame for a conversion to cafe racer or brat style. Here's a link to one out of the UK:

I'm looking for anyone in the U.S that makes these.

Thanks Rob. Seems like most of the airhead conversions are done out of Europe. Maybe Americans are more purists.

Maybe a lot of Americans make their own custom parts rather than buy them.
