PostSubject: Springer Front end and rake   Fri Jun 17, 2011 5:29 pm

Need some advice for switching to springer forks and increasing the rake.

Been looking on ebay for some and they're at good prices vs our dollar so no better time to buy!

Just wanna ask a few questions for anyone thats done one, and whats the best way to it all at once. All I know is I have to buy a springer end that'll match the neck stem and use a good welder for choppin the front!

Custom front ends are new to me so I dont know sh8t!

Any advice is welcomed

Here's some good info for ya Andrew. There's a lot more to it than meets the eye.
Read up on this as much as you can before you rush into anything.
