Thats no reply sven i need words not a star, but just so u know my forks i bought are a tad too short theres not gonna be enuf room for my trusses so i need another set of forks for my panther, i dont want springer i just want regular ashtabula forks cuz there going flat black with a blackcherry paint job and ashtabula black neck with chrome, lots of chrome to set it off nice
Ernest i know you want an easy answer to this but you are putting together a none stock bike, custom if you will. Since the Panther came with a springer and no truss rod fork there is really no answer but you just have to just try. Roger
Install everything minus the fork and carefully and measure where the steerer tube(or fork tube if you wish) would go. You have the answer in front of you if you have all of the parts. Use a couple of pieces of thin wire or zip ties looped through the head tube and around everything to hold all the parts in place so you don't need 5 hands.
Its just a little shy with the threads i need a 7 inch steer tube and it will be perfect for my application so if you know anyone with a set let me know or steer me in the right direction so i can grab them up, Thanks
