Are Teds replica frames made in Tiwan or Connecticut?

I have now and had in the past a few Corbin Gentry rigid "Chopper" frames frome the late seventies, early eighties. They have been of good quality, I just think to straighten a frame it ought to be bolted to something....jb

Have sold 3 of these frames and so far everthing has fit, maybe a little nudge on the lower tank mount on 47 knuck frame, have had to work harder on some actual H-D frames... Their Springers are (same 3 customers) looked (from 5 feet away) and fit right also...geezer

I had gotten a Paughco frame last year that Had the swingarm pivot out of axis. After I got them in axis so the pivot bolt would thread in , the swingarm wasn't in line with the backbone. Straighten the swingarm area so the rear wheel was centered with the backbone and the sprockets were in line. It was alot worse than most wrecked frames I've straightened.
