Default Re: springer fork

It ain't no Cadilac but it rides smoother. That shock to the arms is gone...
It was a bolt on. Everything fit perfect except my headlight mount so I had to make another one. I had to trim 1/4" off the steering post and that was it. My brakes went right back where they were and it only took three hours from start to finish including making a new light bracket and rewiring the light because the wires were too short.
Anyone interested in a springer I'd highly recommend this one. Pyrimid, Star, any other name it 's still a good investemnt. $40.00, but I've seen them as high as $70.00. I got lucky and found it at a quaint little bike shop in Denver on a side street in a quiet, old neighborhood. One of those places that has been there for years, has a faithful following and no one seems to know about it. His walls were plastered with color photos of classic bikes and his work bench looked like an operating room.
But I degress. I'm glad I made the switch from rigid to sprung. Anyone need a nice black fork?
