    Shame to cover those cool twin bars with a tank, but I know you are going to pull it off!

    That fork is amazing, but have you thought about flipping it around so that it has a inverse curve? Just a thought.

    Looking great! I was making a mock springer, but I may try to make one that actually works.

    I also have a SA HD 3 speed w coaster from a woman's Emory, and also from 84. It's on my CWC bike and shifts perfectly. Girls never tear up their bikes.

    Well, it could be if it gets in the way of worshipping :roll:

    Nice work on the springer brother :wink: . That Emory fork looks almost like a Tange or Akisu

    Re: STREET SURVIVOR fabed springer bridge 5/6

    thanks this springer does work but i am a little concerned about , were the springs meet the bridge fork (green fork) , i have a 3/8 bolt running thru 3/8 sleaves bolted at the top this is a heavy duty compression spring, and upon impact it has travel !! and rebounds outward, also can pivot at the bottom, the finished springer these will be grade 8 bolts with a shoulder with rubber gromits on the bottom for shock ,and noise control
