Additional Costs/Notes:

  • Our jig will show us any issues with your frame. Typical issues include bent tubing, engine mounts askew, and transmission plate mounts askew.
  • While installing the frame in our jig we will be able to see even the most minor abnormalities and previous alterations. We will also be able to see if the rake has been altered and by how much.
  • Shop rate for additional work outside the normal scope of work for Hardtail alterations is $125 per hour. Customers will be billed in ¼ hour increments for any additional work. It is at the discretion of Krispy Co. to fix unforeseen issues with customer frames totaling up to 2 hours ($250). Customers will be contacted for approval of any issues and/or additional work that will exceed 2 hours.
  • When we hardtail your frame, we fit up and shape out to our standards. No exceptions or substitutions here, we will not take this work off the invoice for an overall discount on price. This is limited to where the hardtail and existing frame meet. Extra tab removal and frame shaping is $125/hr and explained in the bullet point above.
  • We do offer installation of other manufacturers hardtails and service work to non-HD chassis, however this pricing varies so we will need to discuss the project in detail and put together a quote for pricing.
  • Shipping: We will provide you with frame shipping tips and tricks, and facilitate shipping by providing rates/quotes on an individual basis (we do get reduced rates through UPS & USPS). Due to changing rates the shipping total will be added to the final price.
  • All service work has a 3 week lead time, starting the day the frame arrives at the shop. If the deposit has not been sent prior to the frame's arrival, the lead time does not start until that has been received.
