Identify this Springer...

Howzit, I picked up this Springer about 14 years ago and stashed it away for a future project.....

Can anyone tell me what it is ?

The idea is to build a metric hardtail, but the springer looks a bit flimsy to carry a VFR800FI (458 pounds)

Dumb question, but will this Springer work on a Bobber or will it just look wrong?

I think it would look great as long as the bike is sitting level and not jacked up in the front..

Hey I would mock it up on a few blocks see what it looks like, you will probably need a rake in your frame to run those, they look like Harley D but someone in the mists of time has lengthened them blast the shit off and see what is underneath 14 years of crud .... check for cracks etc .... if not sell em on ... one mans junk is another mans gold :-)

Hate to be a prick...but why waste it on a metric??? Course its your bike, build anything you'd like. Appears to me to be an early Harley front end that someone lengthen....might want to have the weld magnafluxed for cracks first. And NO it will not work on a bobber.

Ah....why a metric....

I'm in South Africa and Harleys are very expensive here (as are Truimphs)

Metric is a more affordable option - I picked up a bent 800 VFR for 9000.00 Rands (front end damage, she still runs very sweetly)

Thats 670 USD or 515 GBP
