A custom built frame should not only look right but also handle well and must withstand the most severe stress, vibration and fatigue tests. It is also normal practice that the engine and transmission combination must fit in the frame without grinding, drilling or any other modification. You can be assured that this frame is the best and nothing but the best. For the Custom Builder that likes a Softail with "Stretched Lowrider" looks, this sleek design Softail frame has it all. The Wide-Tail frame uses thick wall tubing in some sections of the frame, which drastically improves the strength and roadholding without disturbing the lines. To give that sleek, stretched lowrider look, steering head is raked to 38 degrees. This requires a 4" to 8" overstock fork depending on the wheel and tire size used. The rear section of the frame is widened to accept extra wide tires, including our new "Big Foot" Avon 200 tire, in combination with final chain drive. All mounts for side stand and forward controls are welded in place. Frames and swingarms are fully Tig-Welded for superior strength. Frame kits come complete with frame, swingarm, stainless swingarm pivot bolt with chrome spacer and bearing kit, chrome rear wheel axle and Stainless Steel protection plates for swingarm and shocks. All parts are separately available. Fender struts must be ordered separately.
Note: Zodiac Wide Tail frames are approved by the Dutch R.D.W. and the German TÜV as a replacement frame for Harley-Davidson motorcycles, engine capacity may not exceed 1740 cc, power may not exceed 110 Horsepower. They may be used in combination with our TÜV approved rear Swingarms and our TÜV approved Ceriani front forks.
Note: Wide Tail frames with a different rake are available on special order. These special ordered frames have the same quality features as the stock frames but the design change will void the TÜV approval. Special ordered frames require a 50% deposit. There is 6 to 8 weeks delivery time on those frames from the time your down payment is received. Ask your Zodiac dealer for more details
