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.
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
