Finally riding a big boys bike

Have never bought a muscle bike, but have been offered this one. I'd like to know if the components (spring fork, grips, saddle, tires, etc) are the originals or same as originals.

Were the Krates the only ones to have the 16" front wheel and spring fork?

Any knowledgeable guidance appreciated.

This bicycle is a newer reproduction. The gooseneck would look like this one an original.

Reesatheresa, thanks so much! Regarding the original bikes, am I correct in thinking that only the Krates had the 16" front wheel and sprinter fork?

The krates only have the 16"front wheel. The coaster brake krates did not have the front atom brake. This is part of the reason some sellers get confused and think thw reproduction bikes are originals . Stingray Deluxe did have the Springer fork as well but with a 20" front wheel. Hope this helps!

Just a side note---the Stingray Super Deluxe had the springer front, the Stingray Deluxe did not.
