Looking gewd.  The trick with cradle frames is to lay the motor on its side and carefully lower the frame sideways over it.  Much easier to handle the frame around the motor than the motor into the frame.
I was born a rocker.  I'll die a rocker.  And I'm proud of it.

Just picked up the wheels from Cycle Gear and the VHT rollbar paint still looks great, the guy who mounted the tires thought they had been powder coated.

After sandblasting gave a thorough blasting with an air hose and put the VHT on direct. I did a small paint booth out of pvc and plastic with a cheap box fan in the wall. Used cheap furnace filters over fan and a few heat lamps. I put wire around the wheel where the rim strips go, which made it easy to roll the wheel between coats. I did have to fix a few areas that I had runs just waited about a week to cure then it was sandable and I resprayed the area. I found a thread that said put paint thinner on a cloth and when you could rub and area and no paint would come off on the cloth you can sand. Tried this on the inside of the rim.
