I'm lookin' for post style risers to run on a big twin 74 springer. I've found trees without the ears.....but who's makin' a post style riser to run like that?

Anybody?

I made some , but it's kind of caveman style . I just welded some cut off dogbones to the top clamp . Otherwise you can thread the tops of the back tubes and just use whatever kind of risers you want .

I know this is an old post, but I just ran across a setup Paughco sells to run T-bars on their springers. If it'll work with T-bars, it should work with almost any riser.

fine(machine thread) shouldered lock nut flip upside down,weld in top of rear tubes,then run whatever risers you want,usually on a small number of bolts if you go to a bolt and screw warehouse,like arrow or shamrock,they will give you a couple,so the cost is zip...see ya in March Tim.btw,I have decided to build a special bike for the Texas Chainlube Massacre,details to follow shortly
