>Classic Springer Forks 2” and 4” Longer than Stock
Extended Springer forks which provide more ground clearance when building bikes with larger than stock neck rakes. Actually, the +2” versions were factory equipment on XA and 1941 WLA military models. Made with forged legs, just like the shorter versions. They feature a fork stem with two Ø1” bearing seats for the use of 1949-up tapered roller bearings without any modifications.
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.

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.
