Default Re: The designated springer ID thread

Can anyone take a guess at the make of this springer. The information contained in the ad are below. Asking price is $1200 firm. I have no idea if this is truly an 70's era springer or something made recently over seas. Any help would be appreciated, they are not often seen here. I have used the search function and to me it looks like it might be a Fury, but, I am not really sure. If it is confirmed to be a origional vintage springer in mint condidtion, is the price reasonable?


This beautiful springer comes with 18 inches chrome front wheel, with two rectangular lights.My brother bought it in USA 1970, was kept in the house for over 40 years.Was installed on a BSA 650 Lighting chopper but was never driven,like new, good chrome, fit British,Harleys
and other.
1.Dimension; 1 inch square,front legs appro,36 inches long from button of the triple to the axle,back legs approx.40 inches long.
2.Main springs are approx.6 inches long.
3.Rebound springs are approx. 5 inches long.
4.Overall lenght approx. 48 inches long from the top spring to the axle hole.
5.Wheel 2.75x18 inches.Tire-Yokohama
6. ARIS lights x 2
The price is firm.

I am seriously considering getting a springer front end to put on my bike at the end of this riding season. I have zero experience with them, but I have always loved the way they look. I am debating between a girder or a springer. Does anyone have any suggestions for me? How can I figure out what size I need? I like the way my bike sits and dont want to change it.

83shuvluv the one your holding looks like a Defiance cycle girder, the one the chick is holding looks like a P&P

I found this listed as a VL, but I have not seen the rear legs on the neck bolt mount this thick or "filled in" as opposed to the other vintage or re-pop VL's....

Can one of yall help please!!!

Hey Jake- Definitely not a VL springer. Looks to be an extended inline springer. Hard to tell since there isn't a clear shot of the neck stem, but if the stem is 7/8" its an extended 45 flathead springer, if the stem is 1" its off of a big twin. VL springers had an I-beam style rear leg, not the oval round stock rear legs like this one you've posted. Hope that helps!

I think its a 1 inch neck stem... Can this be safely changed to fit my Paughco wishbone frame??

Can it be changed back to stock length fairly easy and safely??

is it a harley and what years or close to?

I just want to know what Im buying and for the price I dont want to pass it up...

Jake - There is no problem putting that springer on your Paughco frame. If it is a 1" stem it will bolt right on using factory parts. If it is 7/8" V-Twin sells a kit that adapts it and you can even convert to Taper roller bearings like any new Harley.
Make sure you get the rockers with the front end and any other parts. A pair of rockers can set you back $150....

Thanks Von! For the price Im getting it for, the neck cups (provided its not a 1 inch stem) and rockers would get me in the area of a DNA springer!!

I picked up these yesterday. Definitely interesting. The springer rockers look like Smith Bros and Fetrow (?) or possible California springers? The rear legs are super beefy with a sliding lower tree held in place with pinch bolts, and the lowers span either side of the rockers. And check out the Taj Mahal nuts!

The girder is missing the stem and spring but looks like a Defiance Cycle or EME but with twisted legs. Any ideas?

SpeedandNoise...I know this one b/c I have that exact same springer with the same rockers and nuts. It's made by Butts Manufacturing. A search for Butts should turn up a couple more threads bout them.

I was just looking through a Oct '72 issue of Custom Chopper, and there's an ad for a Defiance girder. It is similar to the one 83shuvluv has but the horizontal supports are thinner and the axle mount is at the very end of the girder...maybe a different model? either way its pretty cool!
