I can't imagine the springer would be that much more to produce then a standard front end. Tooling, dies, jigs, all paid for, not much more component wise.

HD has always claimed it was...The Heritage Springer was one of the highest cost bike they ever made, so they say. It led to it's demise...The Springer Classic is a stripped down, red-headed step child version of it.

The FX was produced until last year '06.....not sure when it started production. 92? 95-97 had the Bad Boy with blacked out front end. In '07 it was only available as a Screamin Eagle model. Sticker of $27K
