I stole this used billet springer shock from ebay the other night for $50.00 . It will be much easier to snub this shock than to hack up the stock one . Not to mention it is a performance upgrade as well. I'm not in love with the look of it but maybe I can stick it in the lathe and rib it for my pleasure or maybe carve it up, ball mill it and put a sticker on it. Either way I'm pretty stoked.
