I ran into a deal I couldn't turn down
Progressive brand part # 412-4239c, 412 Series

here's the rub, these are for a 1500 Meanie, I have a 1500 classic.
is there any reason the wouldn't work on my bike? they mounted beautifully
and they feel great.

but it was pointed out to me that progressives are built and designed for a specific bike. and will not work properly on a different bike.

I can't see why there should be a problem, as it is a modification of the same frame. as it is used there won't be a warrentee issue.

any thoughts?

From the part# they seem to be 1/2" shorter than stock with less travel and ridiculous stiff springs. Definitely will work but should ride plenty stiff.
