Well this is handy...Thinking D&D or Paughco. No marks other than the serial number. Anybody know what I got?

Only Jammer (not Paughco) offered the twisted front legs on the D&D springers..
So it's a Jammer you have there..

southernfried, I'm not an expert by no means but by the simplicity of that springer it is highly possible it's a home brew.

Southernfried homebrew,Like Link-Belt I agree,Their is some parts that look to from a couple different builders,Rockers may have been Amen but looks like tip or end was ground off,or was refabed simalair to that,and then the rocker nuts look like there from AEE,and top triple tree new refab job,legs new refab or clean butchered old stock.Hope pics help.

Thanks for the replys. I'm trying to decide which way I'm going to go with this project. Not sure I'm going to stay with a long fork.

Directed to this thread with my identification issue-thanks in advance for your shared knowledge and time-specs are below-sorry for duplicating this mess somewhere else!!

Justen

Take a look at the pics- The measurements are below-they should be easy enough to understand.

3 3/4" between front fork legs where welded to bottom of lower spring perch.

2 3/16" center to center of spring rods

Front legs are 40 3/16" very top to bottom pivot center

Rear legs are 40" from bottom of lower tree to center of rocker pivot

Rear leg is 7 11/16" from top of bottom tree to very top of rear leg/top of upper tree clamp area.

Space between middle spring perch/support and top of lower tree is 4 3/4"

Upper tree is 1/2" steel-the stem hole is 1 1/8" in the top tree.

Lower tree is 1/2" steel-stem hole is is 7/8" in the lower tree.

Riser centers are approx 2" on center

Rear legs have approx 4 1/8" between centers

Front legs are 3/4" diameter; Rears are 1 1/4" diameter

Front and rear rocker pivots is 2 1/2"

Approx 5 5/8" between inside faces of rockers at even spread top to bottom (this axle is really to short.

(this springer is only wide enough to fit a 1.6" or 1.85" rim. The one in the pics is 18x1.6"...............I threw a 21x1.6 to check it out-the tire is the key!!!

It's about physics. The higher up from the rocker pivot you place the weld, the greater the bending moment on the weld. Keeping the weld as close to the axle as possible minimizes the effect. Imagine the axle pushing back on the weld directly when right above the rocker pivot, as opposed to using leverage to break it when it's up nearer to the tree. The further from the bottom, the greater the leverage.

Not a bad deal for the price. Springer looks homemade to me, although similar to paughco.

Did you find out anything about the other bikes she had for sale?

New here and looking forward to learning as much as I can. Here's my springer. Picked it up for a bill. Not sure if I'm ever gonna get around to using it but would like to know what it is. I've searched and haven't seen another like it.
