    I don't know if this bike belongs in this topic but I added the original 20in Springer and a custom-made some handlebars which are cut down shorter and made them look like the big Cruiser bars what do you guys think? 20171214_163412.jpg 20171214_163347.jpg 20171214_163339.jpg

    Picked up this little gem. 100% original and completely flawless. Estate sale find. Was told the owner got bike for Xmas in 79-80 and didn’t like it so it sat in a closet in his parents house for 38 years. I just dusted it off.

    pork chops from the rear atom are usually used for front atoms with springer front ends.u can also use a krate chop as well with a springer as mine came with from the factory(or most likely dealer) .Heres some of my Deluxes and my 1980 Cruiser 5 ( all original paint bikes). 81c1c96ead499da9ccb11bfe4a2ab7d5.jpg 370c3ecc11aaa0666218f3639a43414e.jpg 84e68e9e149f818a1444c6ad19005003.jpg bdf641fd9ec556f21c9637a0678b58fc.jpg 9a6eb9f7bda913ad2e8410cb48dd2c06.jpg cf7981be00db4913e280583da6d15c8c.jpg 33e9d08bf8c27fbf42a0eab9ea581259.jpg ccfd9a19086555a58d8f207afdf80bc5.jpg bc2a672133ddba17ae4d71bd8fef7005.jpg f51259da19a11b0750fca0888a3facf8.jpg

    Looks good but I don't like drilling out my Springer for the little stopper to keep the drum from spinning I'd rather use a pork chop nice bikes though :)

    Does anyone reading this thread have an extra chainguard for sale? Color and model name don’t matter. I just want a nice straight one for a bike I’m working on.
