SPRUNG - Harley-Davidson® Springer Enthusiast


Brief Springer History

The springer front end was especially prized by chopper builders in the 60's as the
stock front end on the XA was 2" longer than stock. Also, many of the other parts
unique to the XA are likely hanging on parts collectors walls or shelves.
