Meet my Frankenstein Bike. 1956 Pan Head bottom, 73' Shovel Top. Now the frame is messing wit me.....I have a 1959 frame code (H9) but the only rear suspension on the bike is this unusual upper & lower spring set , above and below my rear axle. I cannot find one like it out there on the web. Does anyone know what it is or what it is called? See pics below.

Appreciate any help out there.

Looks like you got your answer from Kainam in you first post.

Looks like an Amen Savior frame.

Classic Vintage. :thumb


They look cool, but not something you'd want if you plan on putting a bunch of miles on that bike.

That design is prone to letting the rear axle flex.

Agree with Kainam, Amen Savior. They were the largest makers of the "Plunger" style rear suspension. They made complete frames, and also weld on rear sections. I don't know the original reason for the "Amen" brand name, but "Savior" was said to mean "save your ass" from a rigid frame. :)

Milwaukee Mike, My bud had the exact same frame on his Pan. I think it was an early Jammer frame.
PM me dude, I'm just North of you and I've got the same bud's new bike in my shop now. He stops by me almost daily and he can tell you everything about it.

Looking at the OP's frame closer, it looks like it is an "All Souls" frame instead of the Amen.

All Souls has a cap on the plunger section vs the nut on top as on the Amen.

Once again, OP title leads my dirty mind astray.
