Try looking for a 45 wla springer, they bolt on to a sportster and are less pricey than ones used for 74's they are identicle looking just have the smaller stem.thx-138jr said:Thanks Guys
I thought they would be expensive but not that much.
I have a Sporty/K-model 33mm narrow glide front end from a '70 for sale if you're interested. I have a couple different wheel set-ups also. If you're interested shoot me an email at [email protected]. Time to start clearing out the parts I didn't use.GENERATORSHOVEL said:1 Grand Is A Little Much To Put Into A Trump Front End. Try An Early Sporty/k-model Glide Unit. Real Narrow And Spindly. Looks Great And Is Alot Less Loot.

I can't get my mini drum brake to work in the springer... Either the anchor plate locks up the up & down movement of the fork, or, when I mount my other anchor plate, which is mounted to the rear pivot of the springer, when I brake, the whole fork extends and will rip my cable in half.
WHAT BRAKE DRUM DO I NEED FOR THE SPRINGER WHICH WILL WORK..?!!
Don't say disc... I will never mount a disc up front. It looks disgustin on a traditional bike.
Damn... I should've taken a picture... Now I have the feeling, that, where ever I'll mount the anchor plate on the rocker, the same thing will happen.Tha Nutz said:Couple things:
(1) Is your anchor attached with heim joints? If it can't move, it will always lock up. I assume you have heim joints though, or bushings of some sort.
(2) Try what I recommended before, putting your anchor point on the springer's rocker--the rocker always moves in tandem with with springer and wheel, so it shouldn't lock up the springer when applying the brake. You would have to fuck up the finish on your rocker though. Caveat--I have never tried this, just read about it, but it sounds like it should work.
(3) If you have the Zero book, I know they have a light blue (I think) bike towards the end of the book with an extended springer that has a mini drum. Check how they mounted theirs.
(4) I hear you on the traditional thing, but at the end of the day, it's gotta perform, right?
