Here's my second entry. This is the bike I originally had in mind for the ORBO. I tried a couple different springer ideas and came up with this one that works great. And looks good too! I'm amazed.
This is an old used frame from the town junk shop. Maybe an early 90's Nishiki frame. It rides nice and solid.

It has twice as much spring as it needs, so it doesn't move easily. I was going to use just one spring, but the upper bracket was already made with the two holes. I have been saving it for something for ten years or so.

Really nice looking bike. Your springer fork is very clean. Good job on the paint also.
