Hillclimb Springer Forks

In the late 1920’s and early 1930’s, the Race Department experimented with a "trailing link" fork design on factory hillclimb race bikes. This distinctive design was the inspiration behind these reproduction Hillclimb Springer forks.

  • The versions for Big Twin rigid and swingarm frames (4-speed) thru 1984 feature a 1” fork stem for 1948-up Timken bearings and leg tops to accept the 36-up Springer handlebars (inline).
  • The forks for 45”/750 cc models have a 7/8” fork stem and fit the stock neck bearings.
  • Wheel trail equates that of standard Classic Springer forks.

Internal Threads on the Upper End of the Legs

For custom riser installation the fork legs have M20x1.5 internal threads at the upper end and accept riser adapter studs or plugs which are available separately; an extra added by the manufacturer which saves you a lot of work and axle grease.
