That looks a lot like the SIE I have a few posts back. Especially the square springs, and drilled through the legs method of rocker mounting. The rockers look like Denvers though?

The one above has rockers that look like Smith Bros and Fetrow.

Hey guys. Really looking for some help on the one. I posted it a couple of times with no resonse. I've since got it sandblasted and disassembled. I thought I'd give it another try now that the rust is out of the picture.

Here's the rear legs. The legs are solid steel and the lower section where the bolt goes through looks to be machined.

Here's the front legs. These seem to be solid as well but the lower section appears to be hammered flat to accept the bolt.

The front end had some homemade rockers on it when I got it. The stem is one inch and the threads are extremely fine thread. I'd really like to get the correct rockers back on it. Thanks for any info. Corey Van Dine

I really like your old snap on box Cory. Old logo and chrome handles. Nice!
Don't know anything about the springer though.

Thanks! It's a 76 model "Pit box" or "Airport box." It has a storage compartment along the back of the box and the side cabinet built in. It was meant to go to the races or to be used by runway mechanics.

Default Girder, but need ID

Yea, it ain't a springer, But, Can someone ID it? Also I have a chance to make an offer on it [I want it on my Shovel], So what would be a very reasonable starting offer?
Note that it ain't workin too good just now... Who the hell thought that it would????
Makes me think I could make a good deal on it!!
Thanks...RP

Picked this one up at the Swap meet in Charlotte this weekend. Its right at 18" over but any idea what it is? Thanks to Tatoo for the 16" front wheel, looks right at home on the frontend.

Those rockers are on backward. And why are they so jacked up in the second pic?

Was thinking they were. The top nuts and bolts weren't in place when the pic was taken and that's just how it sat when I leaned it against the wall

There are several questions in this thread about I.D. for this front end, but so far no answers. I just picked up this same springer. Anybody know who made them? The rockers are distinct and they have the "bat wing" top plate.

It looks alot like the same brand springer on this trike in a November 1972 Special Choppers magazine. Springer is from "Randy Enterprises"-

For this one, I keep seeing it on choppers in 70's magazines. I've seen it only on bikes, no ads... but the articles about the bikes always say "Randy Enterprises springer"

Thanks, I had someone else say it's a Randy's also, must be true even with the huge rockers.
