WTB Early XLCH frame

Postby Staffords » Sat Jan 09, 2021 8:31 pm

I'm looking for a complete and unmolested early short XLCH frame for a 61 XLCH I'm putting back together. Anybody have one they'd be willing to selll?

The frame that I have now looks to be a K Model frame as best I can tell. It has a '52k neck casting (unwelded), non-reinforced front downtubes, and hollow foot peg mounts of a K frame. The top motor mount, however, is a "small hole" early Sportster type. Motor mount must have been replaced at some point. I got the bike from a gentleman who didn't know its history. I haven't yet stripped the powdercoat from the frame to look for date codes or numbers.

If it has hollow foot pegs I doubt it will have a date code. I have seen several hollow footpeg K racing frames all with C3 date codes. The earliest stock K frame I have seen was an E3 solid footpeg frame. If you can post some pictures it might be interesting.
