Looks great.


I would probably consider it myself if I could be sure it didn't balls-up the Bobber's already decent handling.

I'm afraid I can't help but this is one modification that's on my dream list.

Cheerio,

This might be a place to start:

Pure Triumph Wellingborough
+448443261770
The Embankment
Wellingborough
Northamptonshire
NN8 1LD



Your signature doesn´t show a location - so noone has a way of knowing which area you are looking in...

Hmmm I may have to check that dealership out, I've been there a few times, only an hours ride from myself.

That Bobber in the OP though, wow, looks amazing. I love the tank, I think the whole overall build would be my dream Bobber custom, I'd probably change the seat though.

Cheers,
Matt

It appears to be a Moto Iron brand Harley DNA springer. That's just a guess mind you, its hard to tell for sure from the picture, not enough resolution to see the finer detail. And is probably using an adapter kit or bearings. Looks almost identical to this one:

Springer forks look the part, BUT are decades behind in performance, handling WILL suffer.

I have always liked them on bikes to be looked at, but not ridden.

I have to agree. Some years back I got to ride a new HD Springer coast to coast (Washington State to DC). A dream ride but I still remember the occasional pot-hole. Saying that I personally love the springer look as it fits in with my 'vintage' preferences, so may go this rout down the road if it's viable.

Cheerio,

Roy

Ditto.

Wouldn’t have bought the Bobber if it didn’t perform as well as look great.

You can have both nowadays, but it ain't cheap, I have been seriously considering one of these

Custom Front Ends - D-66 Dragon Springer Front End Fork - American Suspension

Finished like this



but at a starting price of $3799 USD, it may take awhile.
