They made them for the triangular shaped Sportster/FX calipers and for a Honda 750 caliper..

It's hard to tell because the holes were almost identical on both girders..

Figured I'd ask in here rather than create a new thread, but what's the main difference between Paughco's
-"
Springer with tapered oval rear legs"
-"
Springer with half round rear legs"

???

Half round are a lot like DNA (vice versa actually), tapered are sorta like stock.

What Larry said ^^

The oval tapered rear legs are in Paugcho catalogs only for about 15 years or so..

So I guess that's why the tapereds are more expensive because they are a "stock" replacement, so they can squeeze exta money out for those who want stock specs? Or is it that the tapereds actual production process is more expensive?

D&D?
Yea, I think it would be quite a bit more expensive to form the tapered rear legs than to cut off a chunk of bar stock for the rear legs on the 1/2 round. If I was gonna buy a new springer now days, it would be a narrow tapered leg Paughco. I REALLY like them.

D&D was a company that manufactured parts back in the 60's/70's. Pretty sure when they closed down, they morphed into two seperate companies,Paughco and Jammer. I guess Jammer has been resurrected by Custom Chrome, but it's not really the same as it used to be.

I have a springer that looks almost identical to the one SpeedandNoise shows in post #57. I have no idea what it came off of. A couple guys told me it looks like a fury. I agree with Speed in that the rockers are basically HD rockers with an extension welded on. It looks very nicely done too which leads me to believe (after seeing Speeds springer) that whoever manufactured these bought a bunch of (aftermarket?) HD rockers and adapted them to work with their springers.

Nick, are your front tubes slightly bowed towards the front? Mine are too. I've only seen one other like ours and it had twisted front tubes. I'd really like to know who made them, anyone think it's an AMEN?

I would think the bowed legs are from years of use. I am sure the tubing was straight when the springer was built
