I've had this for awhile and would love to find a top tree for it. Any ideas on what it is or where to find the tree?

It's an SBF springer (Smith Brothers and Fetrow).

Exactly what my fears are!!
I have what seems to be a stock H-D springer.. except that it measures 29 inches from the top of the bottom tree [bottom bearing] to the axle, at rest.
I'm guessing 6" over!
So.. How/where would the modification be found???
If I'm not making this clear, I can take pictures tomorrow.
Thanks in advance.

OK here is a couple of pictures.
Where would one look for the modification to make this F.E. longer? I want to check for build quality. I suspect that it was slugged at the point[s] circled in red.
What to look for??
Thanks

The FE is just a casting number. It looks like they extended the legs at the top

Thanks AppleKnocker;
Probably at this point where they apparently molded the joint also.
Odd that it would get modified at the oval portion vs the round part [at the bottom] But.... Guess I won't know unless I strip the thing Huh?
Still is it worth 200 ?? Or run away??

When I look at a springer I check the rear legs first. Its a little hard to tell from your pics but the rear legs are round and taper towards the bottom?
At any rate the rear legs are attached to the original harley lower triple tree with what I assume is a slug and a lot of brass.
Not uncommon and can be sturdy as hell.
The front legs are really nicely extended and I would assume that the same person did the rear legs too.
I would leave it as is. It can never be original again and looks like a quality piece as is.

JUst saw the extra pic. $200 is a good deal.

I thought this was a Columbus based on the design of the rockers but Sixball informs me that's not so because its welded. Can any of you assist? I've been through the thread several times. There are no stampings/markings anywhere on it. My apologies for the fuzziness. If you need more details I can take more pics tonight. Thanks!

Anyone have any ideas of what this one might be? Just picked it up at a swap this weekend. Its missing the top tree. I think its 10 over. It has some cool square springs though
