The "savior" is one of the most horrid things ever attached to a motorcycle frame. And they look bad too.
I hated the look on mine too and it handled horrible, so years ago I cut the spring fixtures off and did an easy repair. I put those assembled Savior spring units on ebay and got way more than I expected. Here's a pic... you can see where I cut it and how I "fixed" it.

It might not look so great now but I bet when it's all cleaned up, powder coated and re chromed it would look killer. If it was mine I would run with it.

Cheers Dan.

if you are gonna do it, rake that thing and go long. I don't mind the frames cleaned up at all but the newer shorter minimal look with them is just wrong to me. I have an aae, tried to make it sleeker but it didn't work. Went with a 7 over springer, twisted sissy, king queen and grew a mustache. All is well
