Found a Springer Front End Hiding In The Shop

So after a long weekend at the Brooklyn events fri and sat I needed a full day to get all the alcohol out of my body and back to work on Coreys bike I somehow found a perfect early big twin springer front end somewhere buried in the shop and though I would put it on the bike to see how it looks and we decided its going to stay there going to go with these bars with a riserless top clamp setup and just need to trim the bars to width when Corey comes back down to re fit him again Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App Uploaded from the Photobucket iPhone App
