Passing Of Carolyn Exner From Jeri Springer Front Ends

cyrilhuzefrontendIt is with sadness that I have to report that Carolyn Exner, wife of Jeri Exner of Jeri Springer Front Ends has lost on Saturday morning her year long battle with cancer. Much more than Jeri’s wife, Carolyn was a full time very important member of the business. Many of us Custom Builders of the industry dealt with her first when ordering a front end. She was extremely competent at calculating and verifying length of a Springer front end for optimum bike trail when we called about a one-off frame with a geometry never seen before. She was also one of the most knowledable women in the business about motorcycles. A native from England, on a personal side, she enjoyed  Sail Boarding, the TV show “Top Gear” and taking care of the exotic birds, mostly parrots that she and Jeri rescued from otherwise uncomfortable lives. My deepest sympathy to Jeri and all the Exner family. In memory of Carolyn I post a picture of the front end of my built “El Mirage’ that I conceived and that she helped me to produce with husband Jeri.

    We here have had the pleasure of working with Jer and Carolyn from day one, there front end was used on our very first full build and we have continued since. Carolyn helped my wife in the beginning with our website as well helping a small bike shop get there feet on the ground. I have bragged on the quality of work put out by such a great duo for a while now and it truly sucks to lose such a wonderful gal. My entire staff’s heart goes out to Jer and I wish him the best.

    I am proud to be a friend of both Carolyn and Jeri. I witnessed first hand her heroic battle with cancer and Jeri’s extraordinary devotion and care of her. He never left her side. I called Carolyn the “iron woman” as she truely never complained about her pain or condition. She was incredibly smart, honest, down to earth and all around good person. Together they made a great team. God bless them both.
