Can anyone tell me the oem riser mount part #

I am looking for the part number for the oem riser mount, it connects glide risers to a springer top clamp with ears. I have included a picture. Hopefully someone can help.
Thanks
Nick

Nick,
Here's your part numbers. Make sure you are looking for the correct triple clamp, there is a BIG difference between in-line and offset forks.

72hawg,
Be aware that the single hardest part to find is the extra long top link for the Springer rubber mount set-up. I have only seen a couple for sale in the last ten years or so. The offset triple clamp is hard too. The risers did not appear until after production ended for Springer Big Twins (other than a few "P" '49 sidecar versions), so it was only a retro-fit on Knuckles and '48 Pans. 45s continued to use springers for a few more years (through '57 on Servi-Cars) so the inline tree is more common.
I usually see a set on eBay a couple times a year.

Here are a couple pictures. You can see the difference in the top link. Also note on the H-D tree the ears are centered, on Flanders they are offset forward.
The plug in risers are a type I modified to work on forks such as the B single front end on this WR. They would work on any JD, DL/RL, or VL fork as well. However they don't exist , you have to make them.

Robbie,
Thanks again for the info, could I ask you to measure the riser link on the springer clamp hole center to hole center long way, I know someone that has one but it looks like the glide riser link not the one you have and it appears to be longer. I have everthing except the riser link and riser mount to set up my Pan. I know there are repo mounts but not been able to find any repo riser link for this set-up. I am glad there are guys like you out there that have the knowledge and willing to share.
Thanks again
Nick

Nick,
The center to center on the rubber mount link is 7.5 inches, the stock Hydra-Glide type is 4.75.
