    They’re made from the highest quality Chinesium and Thaitanium.

    If it's a "cheap" project why throw away money on a springer when you can make telescopic forks look great for peanuts?

    I've no info on that brand but given the shit that can fuck up (like plating, for which there is no fix except replating) a springer is the last place I'd cut costs. It's like buying a cheap parachute.

    I got another sportster with 6 over tele. I used DNA in the past with okay results never broke one or had problems once I replaced the springs and bushings. This one bolts on due to being offset so I was trying to see if it was junk or not. I just can’t see myself spending an equal amount to what I paid for the bike on a springer. Yeah I know they are better, I had a Denver 12 over on a shovel.

    I did a bunch of research. Like, a shit ton. I ended up spending $1500 on a quality springer. I don’t feel bad about it.

    Thread: Moto Iron springer frontend
    "Made in beautiful downtown Korea.
    Trustable at stock or 2" under, PIA to get a fender looking half decent on, [if your state requires such things].
    They are usually in the $400-$500 range new, so the price ain't bad."

    and

    "I have handled two of them, because I was really intrigued by the price and wouldn't run one until I saw it. I did it twice because I was soooooo profoundly disappointed the first time!
    They've got to be the ugliest, cheapest looking springers I've seen. Steel is fine, finish was fine, but every single thing is just not right aesthetically. They look almost backyardish in person, like cousin Billy's welding project at night school. Well, that isn't fair, the finish was good. Photos make them look only half cheap.
    They fit for the crowd of guys looking to build cheap chops. If you want pretty and functional, save your pennies and buy the real deal."

    Search the classified and find a older used quality made springer for a similar price.

    I have bought 4 sets of DNA springer forks. The workmanship was good. They did not squeak at all.
    The first set was 19 inches over and were chrome. After about about one year there was a tiny chip in the chrome on one of the sharp edges.
    The other three sets were black with chrome. Ranging from +8, +2 to stock length at 22".
    I never had any trouble with them. I like them. When you buy the DNA forks you also get an axle kit including axle, spacers for the disc brake.
    Domed fine thread nuts for the axle.

    The only thing I know about them is they are a copy of the Paughco/Jammer/D&D springer that has been around for about 50 years. The TC video show the construction which looks pretty decent. This style of springer was the brain child of Boyd DeFrance Jr. He got tired of working on OG Harley springers which he felt suffered from fatigue due to age. He used the half D shape for the rear legs as it was considered the strongest for the design. They were labeled D&D after the Boyd's machine shop, but distributed through D&D Choppers a separate company owned by Teresi and Blair (Easyriders). This became Jammer in later years. Paughco still sells this same design.
