The Rigid Frame design was the first used by the Harley Davidson Motorcycle Co. It gives the motorcycle that nostalgic look many people are looking for. It also provides a frame platform that makes it easier and a more affordable motorcycle to build. The drive train on Rigid Frame motorcycles, like Softails, is bolted rigidly into the frame and the rider experiences the same chracteristics as if riding Softail motorcycles. Rigid Frame motorcycles have become more popular in the past few years and gives the builder the oportunity build that more nastalgic looking motorcycle or the Custom "Big Tire" look that has dominated our industry in the past few years.
The Bobber Rigid Frame in Daytec's standard configuration will accept a 200 tire and has a 32 degree rake with a +1" backbone stretch. It is furnished without gas tank mounting brackets. We can add rake and backbone and leg stretch for custom applications. These frames are constructed from 1 1/8" and 1 1/2" diameter tube. The 103+ weld in transmission is standard. The Bobber Frame sports the "Old School" rear axle plates with exposed axle nut covers and mounting locations for rear fender mount struts. The frames are furnished with rear axle kits.
