My brother and I just put a Wyatt Gatling Springer on my 2004 Wide Glide and I thought I would find out what you guys think of it. We had to make a few modifications, but it turned out GREAT!

Thanks - Glad you like it! The stops were different on the springer. They hit right in front of the front tank mount. We ground down the frame and mount enough to get a good turning radius and then painted the ground spots to make them look good. Also, with the new front brake caliper on the inside of the fork it makes the tire a little off center but I understand that that is common with a front brake on a springer. When we put the new fender on, the offset was barely noticable. It took a bit of patience but I think it paid off! I now have a very unique ride that looks great!

Are those the DNA forks?
I plan on using this one (DNA) on my 06 Street Bob. Hope I dont have to grind the frame..warranty gone. Did you use an internal fork stop on it by any chance? Heres mine waiting for the green light..

Thanks

Hey Stinger! I like the black! I didn't use an internal stop. I didn't know you could. I used a Wyatt Gatling Springer kit. The stops hit right in front of the tank on the front mount. Check your Street Bob - If your tank mounts from underneath you should be OK. Be careful of clearance of the top triple tree. Mine was VERY close to the dash! Let me know how it comes out.
