Anyone know how to add breaks to springer forks? Would discs work?
Side pull caliper or drum is no problem. Discs won't work because of the movement of the fork. If you want disc brakes on the front you need a solid or telescoping fork. V-brakes are possible but you have to figure out how to mount lugs, though I seem to recall a post on here referring to some pre-lugged custom jobs. I hope that helps.
Actually check with VeniceMotorbikes, hes a member here, He makes, and sells disc brake adapters for springer forks, and other forks as well.
Yep, I make disc brake adapters for all forks!
(Thanks Chainmaker for the plug)
100% incorrect LoL.. I have disk brakes on my springer you must fix the calliper on the rocker not the fork tube, calliper can go either below or above the disk too have done both in the past ...
Hey Venice Carry's a very nice front end and he has the adapter I recommend his forks I think he has two versions a standard one and a reinforced version you just have to decide witch one you can afford
Well, Excuuuuuuse Me!
Sturmey-Archer makes a sweek front hub dum brake. [email protected]
I bought one but am not going to use it. Switched bike plans and the new bike has v-brakes.
I bought a springer fork also....that is not going to get used from pistonbikes.com.
