Bates Fender Mounts

Very nice solution for mounting a small custom fender on your Classic Springer fork close to the front tire of 19” or 21” wheels. These clamps with brackets feature a smart design with only two tiny set screws visible. They install in minutes on the spring fork and hold your choice of a custom mudguard. Bolt hole distance on the brackets is 65 mm, with a maximum fender width of 120 mm. With stock FXSTS fenders you get a straightforward bolt-on solution. The selection includes clamps for OEM Springer forks and clamps for W&W Classic Springer and I-Beam forks.

Cannonball I-Beam Springer Forks

Once upon a time when there weren’t any custom parts you could buy from your local shop, the VL fork was a very popular item because it made your Knuckle or Panhead bobber different from the next guy’s scooter. Besides you gained half an inch of length compared to 1936-up Springer forks for improved ground clearance and a more stretched look. Now it’s time to revive those days of the golden 40’s and 50’s with the Cannonball version of H-D’s VL type fork.
Manufactured just like the original, which means I-beams and connecting braces are drop forged on a huge 10 meter forge hammer. This is the only procedure that guarantees these components stand up to the job.
The problems with installing the OEM fork were the large fork stem and the handlebar mounting so the Cannonball fork is modified here. It features a Ø1” fork stem that works with the included centering collar for 1936-up ball bearings. Moreover the stem also features two Ø1” bearing seats for the use of Big Twin tapered roller bearings without any modifications. The leg tops accept the 36-up Springer inline handlebars. This makes installation a snap compared to the original counterpart.
Approved for 4-speed Big Twins thru 1986. Length is measured from axle center line to seat of lower steering head bearing.
Although these Custom forks are intended for 1936-1957 rigid frame Big Twins they can be mounted with later frames, too, provided you have/install matching frame head beariings. The builder has to consider rake, trail, overall chassis geometry, brake function, etc.
