Has anyone found a stiffer Shelby shock ease spring. I added a few washers to the original orange spring it helped but would like it to be a little stiffer. If I lean forward on the bike the fork will pivot forward.

Thanks Tom

Orange rust?
Modern springs are color coded; the heavier duty ones might be green or brown, depending on which color coding system that the manufacturer uses.
Many springs are available from China and use metric dimensions. A 20mm outside diameter spring should fit inside the steering tube; the inside diameter (10mm?) should fit a 3/8” bolt. The length should be about the same as the original, if original (65mm?).

Jim had a brown spring on hand to try and it works perfectly for me on the bike
