Default Re: springer fork

Thanks for the kind words tyrslider. "All Pro" is a K-Mart bike! The sticker on the frame states made in USA. I couldn't believe it. Also while I was cleaning and re lubricating the crank I discovered the bearings where American! Can't help but think we have really dropped the ball as a super power. I could go on for hours on that subject.

I think the sticker also states '71, it's at the shop right now so I can't be certain but I know it is from the 70's. It's not the best frame ever built but the quality is alright and in very good shape. I'm not shooting for speed records and living in NY, my rides will be short and intermittent so I will be able to stay on top of any short comings.

Lots of work still ahead but a little every day is begining to add up.
