Thanks, I didn't realize that there is on in post #40 of this thread.

And Scavenger, I've seen some kits for use with stock trees where the springs were at the bottom of each leg just above the rockers. This looks like it might use some type of fork tubes for the rear legs but even the trees look custom. The top nut isn't removable and the stem screws up from the bottom tree. The whole thing looks like it can be disassembled down to the legs. Even the rocker mounts look like they might screw off (I haven't tried).

I've got one of those too. The entire thing can be broken down, the rocker mounts will screw off the legs. The top nut is loose from mine, was like that when I bought it but looks like its a press fit to the top clamp. Look through the my pics in this thread, its almost entirely apart.

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!!!

Anyone recognize this narrow springer. Its on chopped 54 Pan frame currently. It looks very well built and strong. Thanks, J.

Rockers look different to a Fury. But pretty similar springer. You're missing top tree and nut to attach stem.. and the risers screw in to back legs to attach bars.

i have the top thing (it definitely isnt a clamp, solid block with 3 holes)

mu issue with the whole deal is i thought this was supposed to slide down over the rear legs. this wont (holes on the top plate are smaller and slightly off center it seems than the rear legs) at all.

i have a nut that can work, but heres issue #2....theres nothing for risers to screw into.... if you look in the bottom pic here, youll see the top of the legs. theres about a 1/4" lip inside about 1/2" down.

Deadman, it looks like i have the same front end. The rockers are different, but the rest looks the same. It also looks like the top piece you have is not correct. Here are photos of my setup, not the best looking but it works and is safe.
The risers bolt onto the top piece and the bolt heads fit into the springer legs. Then the assembly is held down with the center nut, which fits down into the top piece and has a lip on top. My top piece has two holes that are to be ignored, they were there when I got it.
The two nuts under it hold the front end on the frame, allowing to bars and top to come off independently.
The only stamp I have on this is an E stamped on the back of the lower piece.

On mine it's about 3/4".
They were seized in and a hole was drilled through the same piece (top to bottom) to mount a different bracket.
