Can someone identify this Springer? It has a one inch neck. I bought it in 1975. But can't remember the rest. Who, what, where, 1975, why.
Thanks,

looks like an extended big twin springer that was extended using Ford radius rods.
The radius rods were a close match to the rear leg shape (taper) so with a little welding skill made this an attractive option for the "chopper" crowd...

Thanks,
I'm no longer a member of the chopper crowd but that might change. I need a few more inches to keep the drag pipes from dragging. I have been doing some research and will get this thing in order.
