New Parts for the Speed-Twin

Got a pre-54 rear frame from a friend of mine. Laying in his cellar since 1983.
Now it´s back from sandblasting. I love the look of that old brazed cast parts a thousand times more
than the look of that after market frames. The problem is now that the rear frame was extended in the backtime.
Now it´s around +2" longer but arround 4" drop!!! It´s kind of lowrider look.
I guess it´s not rideable! I´m thinking about building a little frame jig and reusing the cast parts for a new rear frame around +2" and 2" drop. Now the rearframe is around +4" and 3" drop.
