I'm considering replacing the stock front end on my 2007 Street Bob with an after market Springer front end. Does anyone have any experience, comments and/or suggestions that may help my decision?? Is one manufacturer prefferred over others?? Do i want a front end 2" over or under stock length?? How differently will the bike handle afterwards?? Any input that anyone can offer will be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I'm riding an EVO springer. (factory springer)
I have no complaints about my springer front end and never had
any issues with it.
Would I get a springer again? YES
Is is slightly heavier than forks? YES
Does it handle much differently? AFAICT they are nearly the same.

I have more complaints about the rear suspension on a softail than I
do about the springer.

I had one custom built for my 06 street bob and love it.

I saw their site, but nothing on it like your's, except the pics in their gallery. How much did it cost? Coolest looking front end on a Bob I've ever seen. How does the bike handle with the new front end BTW?

Also, who made the jockey shifter? Is it a true suicide? Or is the clutch by hand?
