He mentioned Davidson but didn't quite think his frame was a Davidson, either. Maybe it's a copy.

I never saw anything where he said he was gonna cut or modify the frame.

If the bike fits you, keep it and do what it takes to get it 100% streetable, ride it for awhile, sell it if you aren't in love with it. If you do love it, the money dropped was probably worth it.
