    If this is Garth across the border your going to need more than what you got. I've got a never touched early 40's military frame. The neck is out of alignment just a bit and the left rear leg just ever so slightly. Cheap price as these things go. Easy fixes. Still mostly green. Hard to get it to you though.

    Hi Rich,

    What is a mostly green 40's military frame worth?

    Thanks,

    Take it to Wasco in Washington state. They will repair it and repair it correctly. Sometimes money is well spent to save aggravation and stress.

    Trevor, For a nice one about 1K. Compare that to a big twin. Some want more but I always that was fair.

    For what it's worth ( probably not much) I would take up Rich on hi s offer on the frame he has. You can send it to Wasco or some one else but fixing that frame is going to be way more than finding another one IMHO. 45 frames are out there and compared to big twin frame relatively cheap. Redoing any frame is not. It is time and materials.
