I always thought the Evanaction was the craziest (cool) looking spring fork ever made. Interested to see here this goes. V/r Shawn
It's a shame as a "Springer" fork it's purely aesthetic save for a little rubber grommet but the look is worth the lack of function (and added weight) to me. It's definitely wild and depending how this one goes, I'll be making a series of bikes that utilize the curved mast and an Evan's Action.

I'll definitely post on occasion for updates on this. Keep me in your rear view mirror.

Those springs don't really do anything, I was a little surprised by that.....sooooo, I found replacement conical springs for mine. Much, much better.....for my super-secret-soon to be-project already in the works!

Good luck on this project.....

I appreciate that, thanks.
Yea, Kind of a shame about the springs but I'm building a bike purely off Aesthetic like a Barris than something of comfort. I have a feeling itll be enjoyable to ride, but not really built for long term cruises.

And the Curves continue,.

A saddle more WILD and suiting to this Ed Roth vibe has been found. NOS no less.
Guess I've got all the bike themes going now.

A little Muscle from the 60s and 70s with the new Seat, a little 50s Middleweight meat with the fork and some of that good ol'fashioned Heavyweight 40s tanker in the frame.

I think with this kind of weight, a triple speed w I'll th a cleverly placed shifter Might be in order..

Great seat! You have committed to Wild with that color. If you are on a roll go for it! Might turn out to be a Kool Surprise!
I almost gave up the frame a few times after buying it for what still seems like a very fair price given the original paint on it. I got lowballed, and a trade went sour over trivial details., so it sat a bit. Then I see that fork on it's original body for a song and knew right where I wanted to put it.
Everything since has been, . Spontanious but exciting.
