Weld-On Hardtail Kit for Sportsters

New from well-known Dutch classic and custom frame maker Guus Hoogland of VG Motorcycle fame is this hardtail kit for Sportster models 1980-2003.

With this weld-on hardtail rear section, the OEM wheel base measurements remain, so it takes the standard size tire and wheel fitment, and the OEM brake can be used.
This hardtail kit requires some grinding and welding and includes a battery tray for OEM battery and strap (but not the battery!), and the stainless steel oil tank is available as an option.

VG Motorcycle specializes in replica frames for older bikes and can make pretty much every Harley frame 1936-1957 and even the 1958-1964 Duoglide frame.
For Guus, this 1980-2003 Sportster hardtail is a rare venture into the world shaped by the Beatles, NASA, color television and E-starts, but he has carried forward the design authenticity, engineering precision, materials and construction quality that makes VG Motorcycle one of the world’s primary ‘go-to’ sources for restorations, rebuilds and retro customs.
