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 Twins feature a 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 1949-up tapered roller bearings without any modifications.
- The forks for 45”/750 cc models have a 7/8” fork stem and fit the stock neck bearings.
- The leg tops accept the 36-up Springer inline handlebars.
- Wheel trail equates that of standard Classic Springer forks.
The selection includes forks for stock or similar Springer drum brakes and forks for Custom disc brake systems. 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.
