Any info on this that doesn't look good, and for the back leg to do that seems odd the front leg seems the weakest on the DNA to me

Always inspect the early front ends carefully before use..
But you never know of course..
Here's a RANDY with their typical Roadrunner rockers..

Hi, I'm new to the board and I've been in a rusty Triumph acquiring binge. I just picked up this rolling chassis with a wild springer and I was hoping someone might help me identify the maker of the springer. It has a serial number stamped into the back of the lower triple tree, but I can't find any other markings. Any help is appreciated! I have a few pictures here...

Yes, I believe that back wheel is gold plated. I thought it was gold from a can, but apparently not.
Thanks!

Hmm, that's different.. S.I.E. & AEE made a few square tube springers, not seen one like that, though. Don't think it's either of those.

I can't tell you what it is but I can tell you it is not an SIE. SIE springers were very narrow, different rockers and hardware, triple trees were angular with no curved surfaces and square spring wire.

Hey Corey, I have no idea what kind of springer that is, but I'm glad someone picked up that $1000 Triumph, that thing is SWEET!

Decided to buy the springer, price was alright and build quality/condition was good. looking it over I found a "K. FAB" stamped on the bottom tree....? Fab Kevin? Kustom Fab? Tried Google already....
