Faber Cycle Stelling & Hellings Top Fork Clamps
for Big Twin 1936-early 1946 and 45 cui/750cc 1940-1957
In the heyday of Springer forks, i.e. the 1940’s and 50’s, the inward tilted risers and matching clamps made by Stelling & Hellings were the hot ticket. Just the right parts to stand out in a crowd of Knuckleheads and Flatheads. Today original ones are nearly impossible to find so these perfect reproductions really fill a gap for dressed-up classics. Meticulously made down to the details and ready to bolt on. The selection inlcudes narrow and wide versions of the respective clamp type.

Inline vs. Offset
Classic Springer Forks are produced for different frame rakes.
- In the beginning, both the main tubes and the steering stem were in the same plane. This is called "inline". The rake is 0°. Of this type were all 45” Springer forks 1936-1957 and all Big Twin forks 1936-1945.
- From 1946 onwards the Big Twins had the neck angle increased to 30°. To maintain fork inclination and ground clearance, the steering stem was tilted to the rear by 3°. We call these forks Offset -3°, they were stock on 1946-1948 Big Twins.
- When building a bike with ≥+8” extra long forks you don’t want the steering neck so high and inclined that the bike is difficult to steer. Therefore such forks are manufactured with a positive rake, i.e. the steering stem is inclined to the front by 3°. We call these forks Offset +3°.
