    Default Anyone with a 10 over springer?

    I'm getting a 10 over springer. I suppose 10 over is measured from a stock whatever Harley Big Twin, I will measure when I get it. Too good of a deal to pass up on. I don't even have a bike to stick this on yet!

    Anyone here run a 10 (or in the ballpark) over springer? Could you please be so kind as to post some pictures of your bike to give me some inspiration. Thanks.

    Thanks, man. The seller measured it to be 34", so sounds about right.

    On another note, and this is huge for me and I have to tell someone, I was just offered to buy my Ironhead back which I had to sell at the end of 2019.
    Guess I'm building an Ironhead with a 10 over springer?

    The stem length and diameter on your springer may not match up with your Ironhead. The Ironhead’s have 7/8” stems and Big Twins and later Sportsters have 1”. Most aftermarket springers come with the 1” stems. There are adapter bearing cups available though.

    My IH frame already has the conversion cups on it, I was able to do a rough mockup yesterday.
    Rear cylinder has bad compression, time to dig in.
