    Really the next hardest thing was cutting and fitting spacers for the front wheel and caliper. You don't have to buy any just shorten the ones you have. Just blt it up and put on the new caliper of your choice. I went with the american suspension one but if you wanted you could custom make a springer type bracket and use your existing caliper.

    Dynamic choppers out of vegas is the only one I've seen put one on a prostreet style frame and it looks good.

    Moe the best thing to do would be to have a shop make you a custom bracket but use the original mounting hole. The mounting hole is in the center and front side of the springer tree. Check with fab kevin at club chopper he has made a few.
