Re: springer fork
I am using the fork eDJ showed in his post and so far it is holding up. The fork post is extra long and must be hacksawed off to match bike, but that is not hard for anyone with a hack saw. You got to keep an eye on the bolts and keep them tight but not over tight. 700mi and working great and a good price. Went to the bike shop and the old schwinn type was as much as a monarch so get a monarch if you are going to spend the money, best looking forks I have seen yet. But these springers of mine and my spring seat make riding smooth sailing.
Always do a pre-ride check. Make it a habit, and ride safe.
