I acquired it in the late 70's. It appeared well used then. My guess is mfgrd in the 60's. I know to most of us it was not that long ago. "Vintage" was for the youngsters on here.

I think this is an RL springer, not sure if it’s original or not though? Also I’ve never seen an I-beam style front leg like this one and was wondering if anyone had any info on it? Thanks fellas!

What stem is it?

RL's were all 7/8 standard, also shorter than a VL. I also thought RL's were all front leg I beam.. but I'm not hugely versed on them. I know to make them fit a Big twin they need a fair bit of work!

Looks in great shape too!

Hey, Gonzo. If it's no inconvenience, would you post a pic or two of the whole springer (as opposed to detail shots)? A side view and a full-frontal would be swell. Thanks.

Yeah man, I’ll grab you a couple tomorrow. Thanks for the info rhysmort! It’s a 1” stem pressed in, ran it on my pan. Couldn’t find a pic of front legs like that but I thought it was a VL at the time. I see some now, but not many out there it seems like

Thank you. (I forgot about it too.)

Pretty sure I've never seen I-beam front legs before. Says here (Wiki) that the RL was produced 1932-36. Were the forks exclusive to that model, anybody know?

I just sent pics of that front leg to a buddy the other day. That thing is neat. He's extending an I-beam right now, and that one popped into my head.

I wonder if that's not some sort of flat stock bent and added to a more pedestrian front leg, then welded and cleaned up.

Huh.

Looking at post 683, pics #3 and 4, I would guess not. To me the front legs look too deeply indented to be modified cylindricals.

Yeah, I’ve done some research and can’t find any info on it or find similar pics. looks like it was cast that way, doesn’t appear to have been modified. 🤷‍♂️
