Springer Bobber

Had some minor repairs done at my dealer here in Chiang Mai when i saw this in their service dept, a Harley springer fitted to the Bobber with a i think is a 21" front tire, I will try to get more information when i go back, also look forward to the finished bike!

Hhhmmmm.
Interesting, but the jury’s still out until I see the finished product.

Looking forward to pics.

I have always love the retro look of a springer front end. Although having ridden a HD Springer over 3,000 miles cost to coat here in the US, I can attest that it's not the best ride in the world. However it wouldn't stop me getting one..

Cheerio,

Roy

BEGIT!!!!......which is the sound I make when up-chucking. Just my opinion, complete with internal fluids...

Actually, its the rim/tire size that I dislike...the susp is interesting and a bit cool looking....but...the rim...and tire....and, the rim....

These were taken during their grand opening of the new dealership they threw a big party thats why the people in the picture. couple things i noticed right off the bat were the seat angle and frame height, the seat angle looks off to me and the Springer raises the front what looks about 6" i would be curious about the handling dynamics of that springer. I had to leave my bike there that night due to it getting buried in the parking lot hahaha and i didnt want to stay until midnight when the party broke, so i will get some better pictures today or tomorrow
