    I noticed there is a website just for owners of Heritage Springers 1997 to 2003 models (shiny chromed springer fork) As much as I love H-D, to me it was a very low point in the motor companies history, when this model was dropped from production. :newsmile030:

    I will never understand why? To me it would have been a strong seller.

    Yeah I love the springers too. My next project for my dyna is that i'm taking the frontend off and replacing it with a springer frontend. Now if stuff will stop popping up so I can save so $ to do it I will be happy.

    I remember the first one the pulled into bike night. In all it's fringe and red leather accented glory. One old guy walked around it and said " it looks like something only a drunk shriner would ride". I guess he wasn't alone.

    I am a teetotalling Shriner since 1975, :newsmile058:

    I love the 1997 to 2003 Heritage Springer. IMHO the most nostalgic machine ever produced in recent times.

    FYI some statistics from the website I mentioned at the start of this tread:

    Heritage Springer Production Stats:

    1997 9,717
    1998 7,738

    2001 1,857
    2002 1,876
    2003 3,100 R.I.P.

    Richard please DON"T SELL the Anniversary Ultra Classic! I have the same bike and whenever I see your Ultra lookin' good I see my own bikes potential.
    But I have to admit, the Heritage Springer is a bike that I have secretly coveted too so I don't blame ya! :57:
