Thank you!

A front suspension, huh? I am not sure how feasible that could be. If I go with the 70's Free Spirit, then I am probably dealing with a 1 inch threaded fork that is made for 27" wheels. Of course, that is if I re-use the wheels. I would also like to keep the fenders on it.

A springer definitely looks interesting, but probably harder to rig than just switching forks.

I will look around some bicycle shops, and ebay.


EDIT: I found a nice springer set-up, but not sure if it would fit.
