Folks, can someone tell me if the springer front end for the Whizzer equipped Schwinns used a stronger spring? And, can anyone tell me where you might find a good usable front springer assembly with the stronger spring for my 1950 Schwinn I built?
Thank you all very much!

yes, they had a Heavy Duty Spring. Don't you want to use your disc brake?

How does the disc mount to the wheel?
I have a pre '55 springer w/standard spring

Bricycle, you mentioned you had a pre-55 fork assembly. Was it for sale? And most importantly, is the heavier spring available from somewhere?
Thank you.

The heavy spring used to be available alone and they were cheap, not sure if they are still available.

Memory Lane Classics had the HD springs but they are no longer around.

Ray, if it is dated around the time of my frame and has the right spring, I think I am interested. Please let me know what you might have and thank you.
