they might but I would maybe run a piece of tight link chain in place of the cable

the cable just seems a little too small and probably weak

You could drill and tap the lower tree to mount studs to contact the original fork stop bosses on the frame.

If you are just trying to prevent front end flop such as you get sometimes when parking a chopper with a springer then they might work. If you are talking serious stops for a tank slapper those cables will be like thread and snap instantly or pull out. Since all I can see are the fork tubes it kind of looks like this might call for a steering dampner like Scott's sells.
Otherwise I'd do as Worn said.

I don't think those stops would hold against much of any force at all. I'm with "worn".
Plus they look shitty to me, with all that nice fork and brakes.

most everyone here is right-they will not hold up. and if you bring that bike off the lift and actyally check them out-chances are pretty good all they're going to do is wind around the head tube-not doing a bit of good-sitting down and looking at it awhile will do you some good-fork stops are easy, and necessary for a lot of reasons-but can be real boogers in the way of beauty as well when done in a rush or without much thought. You have a pretty nice looking little bike there-add another notable detail in a well thought out forkstop-all the other work you've done wasn't done using shitty wire and head scratching! Keep us updated-


By the way, I hope that's not a garbage can handle under the seat for the mid fender support!!

Thanks for all the advice. I might get something like a lawnmower axle bolt and integrate them as studs in the lower triple trees, I am learning a lot about pateince and careful execution with this build.
