Hi all I’m looking for a Springer front end for my VTX 1300. Any clues or direction to a manufacturer.

Never ridden a "springer" bike, and they do look cool, but I've heard they're not exactly the best handling/riding bikes on the planet...

I had one on my chopped Norton (see avatar). That one was an original off a '38 Harley. Between the extension and the rake, it took a parking lot to turn it around, but it looked cool. Bassdude's right. Not comfortable, but nice looking.

You better get a bikers belt for riding with a springer. I spent a small fortune on a brand new HD chopper to trade it in a few weeks.

handling isnt what springer front ends are all about with the exception of the Honda Rune. Most springers found their home on all out choppers where a radical look was much more important to the owner than a good handling bike. Most choppers didnt travel much further than in neighborhood bar to bar hopping, i dont care what EASY RIDER sez. :choppersm Bry
