Default Springer front end

Anyone put on a springer front end yet? Show us your photos. If not, is anyone good with photoshop?

Anyone think this would be a cool modification?

Oh the hardship one encounters when he wants to put an antique and obsolete suspension on his motorcycle...

I read that HC , and thought the same thing. Aside from the springer looking cool, it's horrible to ride with.

$2500 for century old suspension design--one known universally to ride like hell--just to up the LOOK AT ME factor on a bike. Think I'll keep my inverted cartridge forks. I don't mind old-school looks, but I would prefer to have modern technology to go along with it.

You can call me Billy. Or Luci. But don't call me Shirley.

My friend, Donald, has several bikes. One is a very highly customized Springer Softail. It has PM wheels, PM 6 piston brakes, 200mm rear tire, custom fenders, big inch engine, six speed baker trans, chain drive, open belt primary, (only the basic frame is stock) and a $6000 3D American flag paint job. I have spent several hours on it, since in our crowd we trade around bikes a lot. It's not 'terrible' but it's not comparable to a modern front end either.

Donald's bike has the wheels in line with each other, unlike the stock Harley's offset front wheel on the Springer model.
