    Number of leaves in rear springs

    My 63 R1 Cruiser has 6 leaf rear springs. Is that the standard amount, or are mine the heavy duty ones?

    You have the heavy duty version, much better than the standard four leaf. My '64 Daytona convertible had four leaf springs and I installed six leaf. Handling and ride was dramatically improved.
