    What is the word on fitting 86 and up or better yet 91 and up EVO Sportster motor/transmission assemblies into Ironhead Sportster [85 and earlier] frames?
    Can it be done? Do you have to modify the frame or fabricate custom motor mount brackets?

    This would be way more work than it would be worth. Total frame mod. Cheaper and easy to just buy a new frame. Aftermarket. but as cheap as xl are now just buy a good used one.
