I have it but can't remember which issue its in (I only remember the one's I'm in or on!).
It would be great if you could post it up, maybe it will ring some bell's with someone somewhere. Love to have that commercial.
thanks

Did AEE ever have a square springer that they turned the legs 45' to make them like a diamond? I know takehikes had said something about them a while back

well that made at least one as it was in one of the final catalogs...however don't know that any have ever been authenticated. I do know some other springer company did that at one time as I have seen them but don' tknow who they were.
I do know that if you have one produced this late in AEE's life it would be marked with the stamped logo.

That's Dave's Amani or rather one of them. You should see the one he built that has no frame! Really! It uses the exhaust pipes as the stressed members/frame. Its amazing.

Dave is still building some crazy wonderful stuff.

That Ride-On frame looks neat. How did that work?

It was after I left that they put that together, never went in to production as it was late in AEE's life. I talked with Lenny the parts manager and he coudl not remember anything about it.....I will say this it could be argued it was one of the first soft tails!

I got a nice springer on ebay it says AEE on the bottom of the lower tree, i guess it's a s/n AE1532 and the number 15 on the bottom of all four legs. would that number be the oversize? the AEE logo looks to be etched.

Didnt see this post before now....if the AEE logo is on there and etched then its real. However the number on there is a component number and has nothing to do with the actual springer part number and they had no serial numbers. The 15" on the bottom of the legs could indicate 15" over but I do not remember that being done. You have to remember everything was cut and machined in a multitude of phases then assembled and welded together then sent to chrome. So the parts had identifiers on them
Its funny but I don't ever remember selling a 15" over springer...lots of 18 and 12's.

I bought my '62 pan from the Honolulu PD in '68 or '69, and proceeded to chop it
per the style at the time. I don't know exactly when I ran across AEE, but I know I bought a lot of parts from them, and was actually a dealer for a short while, as there was nobody else here on Maui doing anything like that at the time.

Ran across these in the back of my shop, they were on the '62 chop, but could not tell you when I put them on. I'm positive I got them from AEE. Late 60's or early 70's. I rode that bike until '92, when I parked it and bought a '91 FXDB. Pulled that '62 out of my storage shed recently, and it is slowly getting a complete rebuild.

Have been trying to decide how to do these covers, I've pressure washed them so a lot of the loose chrome has already come off. Have been considering just using a high quality satin clear coat to keep the "original patina" look. Or removing all the chrome and just polishing the aluminum. Nobody in Hawaii does chrome work anymore, I'd have to send them off to the mainland to get them rechromed. No matter, they will look great on my refurbished '62 chop after all these years, however I do them....
Aloha,
Willy

There's just one pair here, two different views:

Here's another pix of those pan covers on the motor when I started tearing it down:

Can you confirm that those are actually AEE covers?

Looks like one of our tweak bars...we sold Moon tanks but with an AEE label on them. Dean Moon was a buddy of Dave brackett's (our engineer and designer) so Dean came up with the tank.
