With the return of the Bobber, retro front ends are everywhere (including on my bikes). Every week my fax machine is spitting pictures of new Springers, new Girders & new Spring Leaf type front ends. Made in America or, unfortunately, more and more manufactured in China. Most are “me-too” products without any plus, technically or aesthetically.
Then the MeanStreet brothers, Tim & Mike Hanlon, showed me the pictures of the new “Rumbler” front end. My reaction? Not for everybody (meaning not all retro bikes), but at least it’s different, original & quite cool. All what a custom builder wishes for his next project. In addition it is offered both in mid & wide glide, in any length (minus or over stock), and a choice of polish, chrome or black, or mix & match. MeanStreet Front Ends.
