great resource page

Thanks, That's a good page. The rockers look similar to the Amen although I can't tell if they're are a single plate or if they have the large bushings with grease fittings. Also the trees look different, and mine are pretty distinctive.

And I had one of those Defiance girders a while back. Weird stuff.

Matt you can get any parts you need for this from your friendly V-Twin dealer. They are also online at V-Twin.com I think.
Measuring the stem will tell you what it was for. Big Twins had a 1" stem. If it is a big twin it may be very valuable to a restorer as it still has the fender tabs and other brackets. Maybe selling it and buying a V-Twin repro and all the parts needed plus money left other would also an idea to consider.

It has a 1 inch stem.. I think the top tree im looking for is considered a "inline clamp"... atleast thats what it looks like.

The stock setup has the handlebars as one piece with the top clamp. You can buy an inline clamp or one that has ears on the side for Flanders type risers depending on what you want to do.
I would suggest you look at pictures of bikes with springers to see what you want to do and then buy the top clamp you need.

Matt - the bike in the picture uses a custom made setup. It looks like they used an old Custom Cycle Engineering top clamp and someone attached the handlebars to it. CCE clamps had a unique round design and I think that's what I am seeing here.
The other thing I noticed is that in order to get the bars low they eliminated the standard Harley "Sprocket Nut" that was used to set the preload on the bearings and was then locked in Place by a pin on the stock clamp.
Anyway to get that look you have to find either a CCE clamp, an old Flanders clamp or a stock handlebar setup to use for the clamp part. The current reproduction Flanders clamp is made from a lousy cast iron and I would not recommend trying to braze something to it.
Hope this helps

Thanks for the help... i cent seem to find the CCE clamps for the 45" anywhere.. I was thinking of like a paughco dog bone style and then i would just weld 1 inch extension bars off of the "legs" of the clamp

It looks like a 10" over stock SIE I had (which bent and cracked), but the rockers don't look like the original SIE rockers.

Scavenger, can we get a pic of the bike in the upper right of your girder pic. Is that a 23" rim? It looks fascinating.
