I believe they were using '37 thru '48 Ford & Lincoln REAR Radius rods as they all have a Heavy Lug at the end like Original Harley springer legs.

Also there were a Few different Lengths, Up to '41 they were about 4 1/2 feet long so they were Perfect for the Super Long Springer mods.

'42 - '48 Fords were about 2 1/2 feet long & Lincolns were just about 2 feet so those were good to Repair a Chopped up springer.

Model "A" & '32-'34 were formed & unwelded seem Sheet metal, You could bend those by stepping on them.

'35-'36 could be used but you would want to sell those to a Hot Rodder & buy 3~4 pairs of '40's ... They have a spring mount on the Rod that is coveted by the Rodders.

Fronts are a Bit short and would require alot more work to make right on a Springer, Not to mention many times Front 'Bones were tweaked to make adjustments in king pin angle to align the car ...
