Default Re: Custom springer front, advice needed

Thanks Qdot. It is a Typhoon, but I don't know the age, I rescued it from a neighbors back-yard When I bought it, it actually had and old, (non running) bicycle engine mounted over the front tire. How cool is that?

Venice Boy, that's basically what I had in mind (using the "make your own springer front" tutorial I found on this site). Do you think it will be stable enough with only one spring in the middle instead of the usual two springs?

The only problem I have with the paint is that I need to match the paint for the other fork for the springer and the gas tank. The paint is also oxidized pretty badly. I think getting a good match is going to be difficult.

Here's how I found it...
