Re: 41mm fork question

Anybody come up with an answer on this? I have some early lowers and was thinking of finding some late tubes and damper tubes.

Re: Denver's Springers - replacement bushings/etc

Don't call mondo for help. I had an old denvers this past summer that needed new parts. He was a dick about it. Asked a few questions and he got shitty with me.

Post some pics. I'd love to see it.

Re: The designated springer ID thread

If the rear legs and the stem are all in line, then it's an inline springer. If it's offset, the rear legs will be forward of the stem a little.

Re: The designated springer ID thread

Only set of numbers I found on my springer is on the bottom of the legs. They're all stamped "646"

Help any?

Re: The designated springer ID thread

Thanks man! I found some springs and rods used I'm going to try.

I'm still trying to ID the springer. I PM'd takehikes and he said the rockers are AEE but the rest isn't. I can't find any...

Re: Shaving 35mm legs?

I agree. Do them by hand.

I've done a few sets on the lathe and I just finished a set by hand. By hand is more labor, but the results are just as good.

On a lathe, if your not comfortable,...

Hahaha, yeah I'm in the process of looking now. I found a guy that has a complete spring set with the spring rods for sale. Guess any springs will work?

These are the dual springs, big spring...

Re: Shovels Rule......Pic's

Re: wideglide fork differences

Didn't they switch from a bearing and race hub to a sealed bearing hub? I know the narrow glides did.

Re: Springer gurus, have some questions about my Denver wishbone springer

Haha, yeah but I've always wanted a wishbone springer though. Thought they looked super clean. Especially with a spool.

Re: Springer gurus, have some questions about my Denver wishbone springer

I think I'm going to pull it off this weekend and see if I can do something with the front leg as its tweaked. I'd also like to take some measurements to see if the front end is indeed bent. I'll try...

Re: Springer gurus, have some questions about my Denver wishbone springer

I would say that would have SOMETHING to do with the handling issue I'm having no?

Kind of like sticking a broom stick in a wheel and spinning it. Once it's off axis, you can feel the difference.

Re: Springer gurus, have some questions about my Denver wishbone springer

Yeah and I would have to cut the lower tree also.

I went out there yesterday and just studied the front end and without taking measurements, I'm pretty sure the whole front end is tweaked. If you...

Re: Springer gurus, have some questions about my Denver wishbone springer

It rode worse with the long rockers. Funny thing is mondo told me the long rockers would help with trail.

I should also clarify that I got new rockers because the originals were 5/8" and I wanted 3/4"

Re: Springer gurus, have some questions about my Denver wishbone springer

I guess I should have clarified, I got it up to about 45-50 and it wasn't as bad. I have yet to take it on the highway, I'm honestly terrified to.



There's a long story behind that, but I did...

Re: Springer gurus, have some questions about my Denver wishbone springer

Man I don't know if I want to get into all that. Maybe I'll give it another try tomorrow. Maybe I can get used to it.

Otherwise I guess I'll be pulling it off and selling it. :(

Re: Springer gurus, have some questions about my Denver wishbone springer

The thing is that it's an original length springer. Doesn't look cut up at all. Your right though, the top tree has a triangular layout similar to a Harley glide front end.
