A friend of mine impulsively bought a '27 twin frame bare. As he has no hope of buiding one up from scratch, what other Indian twin will fit into it without issues?

If it is a Scout frame, nothing but a '27 back Scout Engine will fit it. If you want to sell it I would be interested. We will put it up on the Wall!

Thanks. So the '28 up were different cases? or just different barrels and heads ?

Different cases. They will not go into the 27 back frame.

Thanks gents, looks like it's an ornament!! One ckeeky fellow here in oz fitted a v-twin Virago motor with no butchery until he completed his original one.Got quite a laugh and scratched heads when he arrived on it!
