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.

Hi Tom, here's pictures of some forks,some done and some undone. These are some of Ron's from his shop. The chrome one is original from 1949. I told him you'd be calling him. Ron Houk 1-714- 996-6323

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!

wow I was told there wasn't enough room to put a whizzer engine on a straight bar. Did you have to cut anything away?

No, fit in fine. Had to create a carburetor adapter to angle the new imported carburetor way from the frame. However, the way it sets, clearly it was made to work based on how aligned and balanced looking it is related to the chain guard.
