Who's Springer Front End

I was looking through ebay for springers and came across this one, the listing doesnt say who the manufacture is and asking the seller didnt help either. I liked the fact that the rear fork actually slides through the bottom tree and up into the top tree and is secured with pinch bolts, different from what Ive seen before.

So the seller finally responded to me and said the front end is a DNA, I know DNA has had issues in the past with their front ends and figuring thats why they went to this setup. Only time will tell to see how this front end holds up to real world use

Sorry man for the late post on this. Yeah diffidently looks like a DNA frontend. Here the post I did a few years back of the DNA Springer,
http://www.v-twinforum.com/forums/ha...t-train-2.html . It worked out for me and really did like the ride, only thing that threw me off on it was the squared off look of the frontend and it just didn't seem to flow with the Night Train lines. I ran it for a while and had no issues with it.

The picture's look identical to the ones on Demon's Cycle website. If so, I think it is a DNA.

I've seen E-Bay sellers selling there stuff before. It can be bought pretty cheap.

DNA I think?

Looks like a DNA Springer which is what I'm considering for my '95 Softail. The price is right, but I hear mixed reviews. I even found a company that carried a bracket conversion kit to add a gas shock too. http://www.steelthundercc.com/frontend_springer.html

I'm wodering what length to go with. I'm currently running a 21" wheel with what I believe to be -2" tubes. I want to go with a +2 springer but not sure. I'm thinking the springer has less rake than the triple trees. Wonderring if +2 will raise the front end too much. I want to raise it some, but don't want to compromise trail too much. Don't want to rake the neck, etc... I'm keeping it cheap.

Looks like DNA. I'm considering one for my '95 Softail. I hear mixed reviews, but they're inexpensive (but Korean made). I even found a company that carries a bracket conversion kit to add a gas shock http://www.steelthundercc.com/frontend_springer.html .

I'm wondering what size to go with. I'm currently running a 21" wheel with what I believe to be -2" tubes. I want to lift the front end up a bit and considering going with the +2" springer. I believe the rake in the springer is less than that of the stock trees so not sure if +2" will screw up the geometry and trail too much. I won't be doing any TT Racing so I don't think it will be a problem. Let me know how you made out with these... I'm curious.
