300 Softail Frame Plan Questions

I have the 300 rsd softail frame plans. I am currently in the process of purchasing the materials. I would like to find out when they say stretch for leg room 2 to 6 inches. How would it be applied to the frame?

There are a great number of variables
by: Rick

There are a great number of variables to take in account when figuring this.... The first the location of the forward controls - if you are using forward controls (not mid), the location of the handle bars - back swept or drag style, and the overall design of the bike. If you require additional legroom the backbone stretch will be necessary - a combination of backbone and downtube stretch will be necessary to provide the additional room as well as retain the desired look. Sorry no HARD answer here - I recommend an initial setup in the jig and work from there. That is what I do.
