This is a complete and accurate reproduction of the classic H-D Springer fork as used by the factory on Big Twins 1936-49 and on 45” models from 1941–57. Manufactured just like back in the good old times, i.e. with forged legs and connecting components, which makes them equal to the original counterpart concerning stability and service life.
Use these top-quality forks as stock replacement for your restauration or as a part of your chopper or bobber project-bike.
All brackets for brake anchor, front fender and ride control are there and just like stock.
The dimensions of our standard forks are exactly the same as for the original Springer forks (48.5 cm = 19” from center of wheel axle to lower neck bearing seat).
Big Twin versions 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 Timken bearings without any modifications. They are not drilled for the 1948→ steering head lock.
All of the over length forks from +8" over to +20" have a positive rake, i.e. the steering stem is inclined to the front by 3°. This is done to avoid a steering neck so high and inclined that the bike is impossible to steer. We call these forks Offset +3°, according to their rake.
Standard rockers limit fork travel on overlength forks so the +16” and +20” versions sport special longer rockers to maintain proper travel. They accept 19 mm (.748") axles for custom brake and wheel installation.
Length is measured from axle center line to seat of lower steering head bearing.
