Guy I bought mine from thought it was a "Killer Bees" front end, but didn't know for sure. I honestly have no clue who made it. I have not seen any stamps or markings on it to identify it. Maybe some else here knows who makes/made it? It was 6" over. I had it cut down to standard length.











Pictures From the seller when I first bought it.

Just picked this one up last night. Story goes it's a Ness, it came from an old east bay bike for sure. It's been shortened somewhere along the line and it's super narrow. Has a 7/8" neck stem. No stamps or anything, if anyone knows it's you guys. Thanx in advance.

Looks like a vintage Ness/century springer, or a copy. Best looking springer ever in my opinion.

^^^ That's most likely a Freddy Hernandez front end..
The bulkyness, the width and the Denver's style rockers gives it away..

If cut and extended ,,it's not rare anymore,,though you never know the original legs may still be under the extented part and uncut. All you have now is a old Modified HD springer

Neat piece though , like the molding

John this might be answered better as a direct question on the board,instead of buried in the I.D. thread.And when you say rose joint's do you mean strut mounts,like on a car? And welcome to the JJ

Could be a little more specific, there were a hell of a lot of different springers made in California. Are you talking about California Cycle Works? Pic would help.

Like I said, I had one. They were built strong, no welds, 1/4" wall seamless mild steel tubing. But, they were built over 30 years ago and springers do wear out. Mine needed new spring rods and upper springs. How much more work does it need on top of the $300?
