Default Springer front end on a V92c?

Anybody ever try to put a springer on one of these? The other day i was getting in the last ride of my season and i began to wonder about putting one on my 2000 V92c.

I was looking on jpcycles under V92c's for one and came up with this.

Now while it claims that it's a universal unit, i was curious what it might take to adapt this to my cruiser. Any ideas? I've browsed these forums for a while, and i've seen some VERY knowledgeable posters. Fingers crossed!

Very interesting thought. A lot to consider, like mounting a fender, wheel and caliper. May also have to do some machine work as well.
I would think you would have to budget at least $1,500 for the parts and labor.

Thinking about it i wonder why Victory never offered a springer for any
of the models. I think it would look great on a Kingpin or Boardwalk also.

Maybe someone can photo shop some pics.

From the research i've done lately (and probably should have done BEFORE buying the bike) i've found that the V92c doesn't really offer much of anything in the way of customization. Everything offered is for newer model Vics or (gasp!) harleys...

I do not plan on mounting a front fender at all. I'm sort of a minimalist when it comes to my bikes.

From everything I've read, the sprinters handle pretty aweful. They do have a lot of cool points though. Didn't HD quit offering the springer?

I think the springer's are more for the cool factor. I've always liked the way they looked.

Not sure if or when HD stopped offering them.

Your right PingPongJack, If you want to customize these bikes you have to make it or adapt something from Harley, OUCH!
If you decide to do it keep us posted with plenty of pictures.

Springers look cool, but don't ride as well. HD no longer offers a springer.

Cut the neck off a dyna. Rake it a bit. Go with black springer. Find a trusted machine shop or make some brackets yourself. 1500 counting the front end. I think its do able.

Shouldn't be that hard really. Just need to compare neck and stem diameters as well as lengths. Guys run em on xs650's all the time. You might have to do a bearing swap and or press in/out a new stem. The neck/steering head swap would work too. I got a couple custom machined HD necks laying around if you want. $50.

1500 isn't too bad. I always keep some extra money on hand. Especially considering the tranny on this thing is a ticking timebomb.
