The factory H-D Springer Softails (FXSTS) have the disc on the right hand side.. they just flipped the front wheel from the Softail Custom and made a new caliper bracket to work with the springer front end..

Resulting in about a 1" offset from the front wheel..

(What I mean is that the front wheel does not sit in the middle of the factory Springer.. cheap asses..)

But that was not the point here..:eek:

However-an extremely valid point.

and we thought it was the soccer mom turning left in front of bikers when all along it would appear the right brake only dudes are like lemmings off the cliff.clear evidence of the dangers of front brakes making the spool hub worthy of the name safety hub
