I’m using a Baker DD6 transmission and they mount on a 5 speed transmission plate as used in Evolution Softail frames. I don’t care for the flimsy stamped sheet metal trans mounting plates available commercially so I opted to make my own.
Back in the day we used to have V shaped rear foot peg mounting brackets I always thought looked pretty cool and they helped fill in an empty spot in the frame for a ‘tighter’ look I prefer. 
 
 
Here you see me getting started. 
 
 
Four holes later
 
 
With a little machining, we have a transmission mounting plate.
 
 
Here we see the old style foot peg bracket bolted on.
 
 
Now the transmission is in and will line up perfectly with the engine using a Baker billet motor plate that comes with their 3 inch outside belt drive. 
 
Hold on for part 3, when Doug turns a couple chunks of aluminum into a one of a kind OilTank -- Richard Kranzler
