Re: springer fork
Are most bikes standard sizes as far as the front fork attachment goes? In other words are bearing, shaft length, etc compatible. I would think you would be limited to a fork that is exactly the same in terms of the measurements listed above unless you want to get into some machine work. That's not an issue; I can run a lathe, Bridgeport, etc and I can weld but if going to a springer front can be a bolt on it would be more attractive. I'm getting lazy in my old age.
