I have a Harley springer front end I bought at the swapmeet which was complete except for the rockers. So I called harley and asked how much the pair cost. They said about 700 dollars for rockers for the front end. So i said screw that I made my own. Let me know what u guys think.

well it takes me time to sit design, have a couple of beers. program cnc have a couple more beers, pass out. wake up set up cnc mill, drink a couple while parts run. If part looks good and works well, then ill celebrate to that. It usually takes about a week from design to finished product. where as if harley has it in stock it will only take 1 day to pick them up. But for 700 i rather enjoy my journey in making them myself

That's a really nice piece of work, but you better find a new Harley dealer. bikebandit.com list the price for the OEM parts at $132 each.

I would just like to add that these are a work of art.
You could even say the exorbitant prices at Harley were your inspiration.
