Default Re: springer fork

I saw a Schwinn "repro" girder fork at a local bike shop that was made really well it had zerks on the pivot shaft so that you could lube it w/ a grease gun. Also the pivot shaft was supported by bushings rather than steel on steel. They are expensive at around $150 but I would recommend against buying the cheapest girders out there. they're not very confidence inspiring. Also a local bike shop traded me a set for some machine work, I think he got'em from his Raleigh dealer, they're pretty HD guage steel and all 4 legs are welded together instead of doubled over the axle.
