V-Twin™ Replica Frames feature steel forgings in neck, front
and rear motor mounts, rear axle plates, swing arm and shock mounts.
In this process, the steel is first fired as red hot ingot, next huge
hammers compact and orient the grain structure into a rough shape
of the part, subsequent hits form the part into its final shape, after
which it is machined and heat treated which results in increased strength
and resistance to wear. The related components used in construction
are accurately formed stampings and drawn over mandrel seamless tubing
which is tig welded together during final assembly.
