Compare the 2 stems, if their both 1" and the same length you should be fine.

It will work i have a 70 bonnie 650 with a 79 dual disc sporty front end, i had to trim off the turn stops from the harley triple tree but that was it.

Reviving a old thread....Whats the approximate difference in lengths between a 39mm Sportster front and a Triumph? Specifically a 70 T120R.

depends on the year of the harley front end
