I recently bought a project 45 flatty that has this strange springer on it. It appears to use stock triple trees from an old sportster(?) front end. I have never seen one like this, can anyone identify the manufacturer?

Think this is a Denvers but not really sure ( the rockers make me think that but ). The riser holes are odd , they are 2 3/4" on center

They are similar to AEE rockers but smaller and the construction of the springer is not like AEE's. For example, AEE did not flatten the ends of the legs and trees even on the round springers were not rounded off. Pretty sure that's not an AEE springer.

Ok its not AEE but it is Custom Cycles Inc springer. Check out the July 1973 issue of Street Chopper there is a sporty called "Blue Flame" with the same springer

It's not actually mine. It's on a bike that's been sitting in a friend of mine's living room for years and years. I'm due to drop in and say hi, I might be able to get some better pictures for you when I do.

Well, it looks like I have a brother to this springer, except the rocker is a different shape:









I'd love to find out more about this springer, so if anyone out there has any info, I'd love to hear it!

I'm not too familiar with all the Springer designers, but the springer I and SpeedAndNoise posted, does have some similarities to some Dick Allen Springers.

Could they be a Dick Allen Springer?

That's definitely not a Dick Allen springer.
