Girvin 1 1/8" turned down in lathe to fit. I bought it with the elastomer missing, so I cut down a gate spring from Tractor Supply for the shock. It works great, but I have a better looking spring that I'm going to add when I strip down to paint.
the Porucho was 1 1/8" so it was no problem. With the Schwinn I was lucky enough to score an earlier 1" headset version of the fork. I have also used the 1 1/8" fork in a 1 inch frame with a headset made by Genuine Bicycle . here's the link... http://www.genuinebicycleproducts.com/ and this shows how to install it. http://www.flickr.com//photos/17534977@N00/sets/72157628195500205/show/.How did you make the headset work. I've got 3 Felt Cruisers I can't finish until I get it right. Thank you - Gig
Many used a full coil spring shock absorber with hydraulic damping, some used a simple elastomer. There's even an air spring option available through Risse Racing.Is it just a spring or is there some kind of shock absorber?
