    On Prewar Schwinn balloon bikes are the boys and girls springers interchangeabl. I know the steer tube is longer are the forks and truss longer?

    Thank you in advance Todd

    I was wondering the same thing? I’m looking for a springer fork for my 46 Schwinn girls bike.

    I lied - a ‘41 girls fork will fit a tall prewar men’s frame.
