Re: what did you do to your motorized bicycle today?
I've been working on this on and off in my free time but i got my Girvin/Noleen fork finished and put back together. Got this thing off ebay a few weeks ago and it was pretty easy to tell it was about 20 years old so I took it all the way apart, cleaned everything and re painted the fork legs and all the previously painted parts as well as re lubed all the bushings, then the original polymer that they used as shocks back then I replaced it with a modified go kart shock and a custom wound spring for this fork.
It's ready to install now and needs to be partially disassembled in order to install it, but this thing is rock solid and weighs less than half what the stock Roadmaster front suspension fork weighs.
I went with this type suspension since it's a very old design and been proven with superior handeling charicteristics as well as being unique and cool looking. Hopefully I'll be able to install it tomorrow, and it won't be raining so I can test it out.
