Default Re: springer fork

well got my springer for x mas, and first word of advise, do not cut the stem untill you have test fitted it into your frame. i made the mistake of taking my old forks and lined it up with the new springer, cut to same size,only to find out i needed an extra 1 3/8 inch, did get it fixed, but added additional 2 hrs to the job. I have a 5 3/4 head tube and had to use 1 inch I/D tube to fab a spacer, between top of head tube and springer support arm. Also found that the long horrizontal bolt had only 1/4 inch of thread going into the nut, replaced with a 5 inch stainless bolt from Ace hardware, $1
