you can take the stock frame and tack the kit to the swingarm in  the same spot on both sides. you may have to cut the drop outs then set your height by bolting a piece of flat stock to the upper and lower shock mounts that way it will be square when you weld to the frame.

Free frame jig plans are at http://64.172.168.34/neatstuff/welding-jigs-1.htm

And if you're gonna build frames, do yourself a favor and get a copy of The Chopper Builder's Handbook at http://64.172.168.34/neatstuff/cds-1.htm.  RR
