Default Re: Question on Installing a Springer Front End.

The bolt through the spring broke off on my springer. I had to take it to a machine shop to get it out. That scared me a bit so I went and got grade 8 hardened bolts from home depot for both the spring bolt and the pivot bolt. Also I noticed old schwinn springers had a nut behind the screw in plate. I got nylon locking nuts for the spring bolt and the pivot bolt. I haven't yet cut the steering tube, I used spacers.
