How bout this seat. Is this an AEE? I can't find any marking on it but going through some old ads on the web. It fits along the lines (Stitching) that was AEE commonly sold. Thanks.


I was gonna sell it but didn't want to sell it until i figured out who made it so as to not Mis advertise something. It will soon be off to eBay.

I have been trying to find out what kind of springer front end I have on my Ironhead & after going onto Takehikes blog site, I have discovered that I have an AEE front end & mini drum brake.

The later sissy bars were stamped on the fender brace. From the information I have found this is pre-71 or maybe earlier??

Only place they were ever officially stamped was on the fender brace. No stamping went on until about early 72. It was spotty at times too.
We also used an etching machine to etch the chrome on some parts.
You would have been stunned if you saw how many sissy bars we sold back then, it was incredible. Every one of them made in our shop.

Those risers do not appear to be AEE. I would have to check the catalogs to be sure.

I think those risers are AEE...Here's a pic on page 76 from one of the early catalogs, I have two skull shift knobs that turned out to be AEE after seeing it in the catalog.

Brent correct me if i'm wrong, but AEE also sold parts that they did not make. so lots of stuff could be "AEE"...i worked about a half a block from where they were in Placentia, in fact i work with one of the old employees and Street Chopper staffers, Brian Brennan.
