Coil Spring Specialists(Specialties?)
These guys are in the midwest and made me some custom front springs for my '54 Merc. I don't know if they do anything for bikes but it is definately worth a shot. Good Luck.

This might show my ignorance, but why can't you cut the ones you've got (being careful not to heat them up too much)? I used a cutting wheel on my 4" grinder and used lots of water to cool. Is there any reason why this shouldn't work in a non-progressively (straight-wound) spring.

Because you can have them build them to your desired height, retaining the number of coils, thus keeping some ride. When I first just cut them my front end bottomed out ridiculously bad. The cheap and easy is not always good. This is not on topic.

what would prevent you from cutting the springs in a glide frontend? would that, or shall i say COULD that, work? i was thinking of trying that on the Ironhead Project..............
