    Do you mean the front fork struts? I have a ladies Mercury frame that I think has struts and I believe is the same frame as the Higgins. I could get a pic this weekend.

    I had planned on having it torn down and sanded by now so I could start on the paint but this wonderful Missouri weather changed my mind
