Yeah, I'm sure they were straight. I'm thinking it must be from the design/ geometry, or material, if they both bowed the same?

It's a Denver's!...you can tell by the headlight tab and the welded neck stem. The rockers are a dead giveaway. All Denver's had these. But the top tree has been modified...Price? Depends on the length and how complete and good the chrome is. I've seen 20" and 30" overs sell for over $1000 easy...

Add another one to the list, I just picked up a loong springer like this. As far as I can tell, the front tubes aren't bowed - she should clean up pretty nice.

I don't think it's an Amen, because the pics I've seen of Amen's have a straight bar going across the bottom spring perch & this one's got more of an hourglass shape.

Amen:

Also, looking at the rockers, (I can't find a close-up pic) it looks like the Amen rockers were cut out of a flat piece of steel, where - as has already been said - ours look like an HD-style rocker with the extensions welded on.

They've got a pretty unique looking top tree setup? Anyone have any ideas what make of springer we've got?

Thanks!

Nice! Yes, I'd love to see a scan, but that looks like it!

Huge thanks!

Yeah, that looks like mine, but it's hard to see the trees. I've only seen 4 or 5 of these springers (all on here) and have never heard of Mel's. Thanks Appleknocker!

Looks like a D&D but the top clamp and the rockers look like a different manufacturer. I will look at my old magazines

Picked up a couple springers and I feel like I've seen them before but can't find them in this thread or any of my mags. The first one has distinctive trees, and large rockers.







The next looks like it is a Denvers because of the V trees, but the rockers look like some I've had on another springer in the past, and the nuts and square springs look like AEE.

The 2nd one looks to be an SIE. Distinctive rockers, "butt" welded lower tree and square springs.

Well. I need some help with this springer ID. It is on a bike that was built in the early 60s in SoCal.The handle bars are part of the springer like a Harmon Girder.I took some pictures so I hope they will help.

Looks like Sugar Bear to me. You're lucky, he's one of the best.

I'm still trying to ID the springer on the last page with the huge rockers and batwing top tree.
