    Frame castings

    Where's the best place to get replacement frame castings? I need some footboard lugs and sidecar mounts.

    I see footboard lugs on ebay with big price differences. is there a difference in the lugs?

    I also see some sidecar loops, ring only, to weld onto existing forging. Anyone used these with success? I'd rather replace the loop vs the entire forging if it can be made to look right.

    Frame parts:
    Race frame http://www.raceframe.com.au/index.html
    Wasco frame http://wascoframe.com/store.html
    Vtwin

    You can get the loops to look good by welding, grinding, welding, grinding until it looks good.
    Result not strong as original, should not be used with sidecar.

    I know it WAS Milwaukee Iron located in Lynchburg, VA. I know Houston kept the table and I am not sure if he has tried to start it up again. It is a shame that a legitimate artist and engineer loses out to something like OCC and Paully design. When I google it I get some shop with clothes, not it, and a site that looks like it may have been the right place at one time.

    Re: Frame castings

    Thanks guys. That Race Frame site looks like all you need is some tubing, a welder and a frame table. That and a buncha skill AND money.

    I'll be ordering from Wasco soon as I find out exactly what all I need. I don't plan to use this frame with a sidecar. Just would like it to look better than the hack job it is now.

    thanks again.
