Default Softail Standard vs Springer

Can anyone tell me what the major differences are between the Standard and Springer and the Standard and the Duece?


Thanks

Besides the black and chrome engine the front end and maybe some other chrome pieces, they're almost the same. Except they stopped making the FX Springer in 06. Don't know about the Deuce

Rumors say that the Deuce is done in 2007.

Standard has least amount of stock chrome out of all three models, silver PC engine, standard front end, slightly different bars. Usually get silver PC rear wheel and spoked front.

Springer has more stock chrome, black PC engine, springer front end, slightly different bars. Earlier year Springers have come with miniapes and buckhorn bars. Usually get silver PC rear wheel and spoked front.

Deuce has comparable chrome to Springer, maybe more, black PC engine, slimmer/sleak tank design, standard forks, and Deuce fender. The bike has a more racey design. Usually get Deuce style silver/chrome rear wheel and spoked front.


They are all really nice bikes. The Deuce is treated like a red-headed step-child by the parts guys. Disproportionate amount of aftermarket accessories for Deuces relative to the other Softail models as evidenced by the "except FXSTD" seen under the description for most parts.

Springer looks good but requires alot more service in the long run. Kneck bearing replacement. Don't ever buy a springer withoutExtended Warranty. 10k adds 2.0 hours. If you do your own service and skip the front end it ride like a dump truck.
