Shadow Springer started

I started it today and got a lot done. Im waiting on the riser adapter and a way to mount the signals. Here are a few pics so far.

Honda stem mounted in the Springer fork.


Honda forks removed.


Springer installed.



Springer brake.



Luckily I had several wheel spacers in different sizes. I plan on finishing it tomorrow and will post more pics of the completed project.

Looks Great ! So from the pics looks like you extended the stem from the forks? Where did you score that springer from?

No, the stem is the stock length its just been machined to fit the Springer fork. The Springer stem is smaller in diameter than the Honda stem. I got the forks on Ebay. I also used "All Balls" bearings for the stem. Went together very easily! I was surprised! I also had to do some machining to the Springer top clamp so it would go over the Honda lower stem nut. The fact that Honda uses double stem nuts makes this an easy swap.

I have to give SurferNick mad props on this swap. He answered every question I had the same day. Also InsaneWizane for the Harley trees which is where I got the stem that was already modded. I did have to do a little more machining to make it fit right in the Springer fork. Thanks guys!

The bike is looking wicked, Doc. I am really digging the springer front end. Everything must have fallen into place on your build, as you got a shit load of work done in one day. I guess that is the benefit of proper planning. What made you decide to do the springer front end? Is this the direction you have always been headed in, or was there a defining moment or a certain bike you saw that did it for you? I don't know if you can answer this one, because you haven't ridden it yet, but is there a big difference in the ride quality as a result of the springer front end? Either way, it is gonna look hella sharp on the front end of your bike!
