"I bought one of the first ones last fall. It doesn’t fit correctly and a good portion of the hardware is either missing or incorrect. I have been trying to get it resolved with Paughco but it has been very slow. It does look nice sitting in the garage, but it would look better on the bike"
Oh the hardship one encounters when he wants to put an antique and obsolete suspension on his motorcycle...
$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.
