Here is my Top Fueler fork project that was just completed this July 2017. I have made these forks in the past in the original look of ruff finish plates and polished fork tubes. This time I took it up a level. I had all the stainless steel material mirror polished. Then I brought the material to my welder to be put together. Then back to the polisher to remove the welding blu. Back home and some small finish polishing and they were done. I had quite a few people ask me about making them so the time was right. These are truly show forks for your muscle bike. The responce was Great with everyone who said they wanted a set before I made them buying them when they were finished. The few extra sets were bought up in a few days. Here are some pics of the material through the process. Plates are waterjet cut from one company. Tubes are cut and ends pressed by another company. Polish another company, welding one more person. I bend the tubes to the correct bend.

My friend as a kid had a chopper bike with forks his dad made, he didn't have to worry about anyone riding off on it because he was the only one who could ride the dang bike!

I dont have any forks left. I do have a set of fork tubes in steel not stainless steel. I have a template for the plates and can tell you how to make them. It is not that hard you just have to make sure everything is straight before you weld them. The fork tubes and steering tube are welded to the bottom plate. Top plate comes off to mount them and is held on by the nut. Let me know if you are interested.

Thanks.....Jaxon

The originals were chromed steel, the reproductions were polished stainless. Also, the decals on the originals are a lighter blue color, and the reproductions have a darker blue decal.

Also, if your decal isn't installed on the fork, it is a reproduction. The originals came with the decal stuck on the bottom plate when you got them, Jaxon shipped the sticker in abag with the fork.

Hope that helps!

Hey Jaxon I purchased a set of top fueler drag forks on ebay a few days ago, and was just wondering if you are the only one out that was remaking them, they are a awesome set of forks just wondering if this is your work , the listing states that they were made by the bill Matthew Co. They just seem to new to be a original set, thanks

The ones you have are his reproduction, they aren't an original set. There is no one else has reproduced them.

Jaxon did a great job on them, they are well done!

Yes they were the forks I made. My forks are all made from stainless steel. A magnet test will tell if they are real or mine. You got a good deal on them.
