there are a few companies out there, i think redneck eng can make you one. Flyrite has springers that might fit. some one else will chime in but there was a thread that said they acted a little wierd on a swing arm frame.

Someone on here tried a Paughco, but there were clearance issues, even tho their website says it'll fit. You could always have someone add a gooseneck to your frame to make clearance...

A guy over in the V-Twin forum put an old bad boy springer on his street bob. He had to do a little fitting, but it sure looks great.

Yes Paughco's got one but it's like $1800 bucks. I think I'll try something else.

DNA Springer will fit but I know some people don't like the looks of them. I saw one on a 06 streetbob. Looked pretty good. Their pretty inexpensive. Ebay around $400.

The DNA is not a bolt on front end for the 04 -up models. You have to modify your frame to make it fit.
