the frame is actually a cranebrook. the tank is beat out on a shot bag and formed on an english wheel, then the 2 halfs are welded to the frame. what i like about using that style tank is that you can change the style of the whole bike by just changing a few accessories. add down turned bars and you've got a board tracker, moon bars and it's a cruiser. black knobies and stright bars and i'ts a TT bike. the possibilitys are endless.
This one goes 44mph and handles superbly... I wouldn't worry about springers.yeah, the fork is just for looks and stiffening up the front end. with the pipe and porting mods this bike is pushing close to 40mph. a springer is a little loose at those speeds.
Brett is there dampening in that springer? Cause if you go thru a corner hard enough to compress those springs you going to see some serious pogo if there isn't. With the disk caliper mounted there does it raise when you apply the front brake? Very cool looking chopper. Camlifter just like everyone else said really great looking tank.
