Thumbs up Some pics of the frame, wheels and tank

Yes it is a piece of wood....... trying to take some measurements for springer options.
Figure it is going to be 10ft long minimum.

try to use a few different rake/trail calculators - some online, some downloadable to get a ball park of the length you need.

Don't level you bike perfectly to the floor with fully extended fork. Keep front of the frame .5-1'' higher than back, then chose the fork length: When the bike loads up with all it's weight- it will collapse the fork a bit( for hydraulic fork it's typically 1-1.25''. Not so sure for springer- but still some.)- that might come close to the level.

Remember- you also will be sitting on the bike[another 200lb?]- so with you on it - it still should look level or slightly higher in the front, but not lower!.

I'd rather see a bit longer front than too short. I whink you can shorten either hydraulic or springer manipulating with it's components.

Good luck

looks like a 5 3/4. Headwinds call it a Bradley Bullet. There are copies as well. I have a copy I can sell much cheaper
