Default springer, glide, girder....top plates

Is it just me or is there somewhere just full of the top tree for front ends?
I see in particular springer after springer with no top tree. Where the hell do they go? Just baffles the shit out of me.

They are laying somewhere with the handlebars still attached, most time folks just take teh top off with the bars attached,,later teh bars get used and the piece ends up in a box or something

Cool Re: springer, glide, girder....top plates

I noticed that too and a few years ago picked up a springer with no top. How do guys lose them !

You are probably right Scavenger.....but how is it easier to take the top plate off than the riser caps? Lazy a-holes anyway!

Ha ha - I've always thought this too. Seems like 90% of springers are missing...they always seem to sell the top clamp at a different time.
