I doubt it. We haven't ironed out the details. What do you think of his springer? I'm thinking of running it.

It looks custom and very well made. A big plus is with him redoing your CFL it's sure to be set up right.

So here is the plan:
The above parts
2up frame, 38 rake, 140 rear
Doom wheels 3.5x18 rear 2.15x19 front metzeler rubber, pulley rsd (sellers remorse selling my old set!) got another on the way but thicker spokes.
Stock softail fwd controls
Brembo brakes
Single airbag under seat
SS style exhaust

I'm gonna read this post when I'm done and see how much has changed. My other build changed ALOT along the way but I think I know what I want on this one.

Man I love that Springer but he only makes them mid-glide... I can't afford to change out my wheels so I have to go with the Twisted Choppers wide wish-bone Springer ($1250).

If you need an inexpensive front wheel I have a stock 2011 sportster 72 wheel. Basically new with tire. I had black bike swap out bearings to 3/4. Its a really nice wheel. I found a set of doom wheels on ebay I had to have. I felt shitty unloading my old doom wheels but these are thicker spoke style so I'm very happy.

Dom sold it to me. Its a nice tank and will fit the narrow design of the bike. This bike is being built to split lanes in LA. I hope your web struts work, I will send you pics of the frame with tire centered and we can make the call.

Just got a pictures of your modified CFL frame from Chassis Design. Frames in the jig with the 140 rear tire in place looks nice.[IMG][/IMG] [IMG][/IMG]
