    I have an '04 Road King Police with air sprung saddle. The girl has 50000 miles now and I would like to chop her, old school like. Any ideas or experiences. Photos would be nice.

    Actually, old school choppers were built from big twins like the Duo Glide and Electra Glide way before there even was a Dyna.

    If youre going to chop the frame my recomedation would be to sleeve it.Determine the inner diamiter of the frame.Then go to a metal fab shop and get some smaller tubing that will fit inside the existing frame.Drill a couple of 1/4" holes on both sides of the cut so you can plug weld for stiffness and stregnth.It will also give you a lap weld vs. a butt weld.Lap weld is wuch stronger.

    Simply cutting and welding will create a serious week point.Measure twice, cut once.
