You do like making life difficult for yourself Kaiser :roll:

How about chopping off the rear end completely and welding on mounts to take an AMP rear end- very easy to do. Hey presto, a unique DeKerf/AMP period full susser.

I can measure and send templates for the conversion if you like?


Its no fun if its too easy :lol: I think I'll stick to a faithful resto at the moment but a retro modded amp'd frame....... :)

Sure its not real pretty at the moment, but I think repairing is definitely a real option.

I've seen a lot worse repaired

I think it'll be worth it, it was never really a financial project just something to get into.

Put it on the very back burner, save your cash until you can go on a frame builders course, I've seen at loeast 2 but it costs about a grand. You are just the guy for being a frame builder, handy technically and very pernickety :lol:

:D one day I might, I was going to try to teach myself but the more you read the more there is to it. I'll get the mancave sorted and I have almost secured most of the gear I need then give it a bash. I was going to start with a few other bits but we'll see :)
