    JUST FOR YOUR INFO, 1941 WAS A TRANSITION YEAR.
    THERE ARE BOTH 5 AND A FEW 5 3/8 HEAD TUBES!
    IF IT IS A 5 3/8 HEAD TUBE A POSTWAR SPRINGER WILL WORK.
    THE GIRLS PREWAR IS 7 INCH HEAD TUBE.

    The "Wes" is the best. Me and Jim thank you for your info. I have incomplete forks for whizzer,prewar, and postwar. Tough to figure out all the ins and outs.

    Even tougher when folks give out the wrong info.....

    41 girls have 6" head tubes, even described as a new feature in the catalog. Only boys 41s I've ever seen with the longer headtubes were DXs, but there may be other models as suggested.

    I HAVE HAD A '41 BOYS WITH A 5 AND 5 3/8 INCH HEAD TUBES.
    AGAIN, THIS IS FOR 26 INCH BIKES ONLY!

    IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A PREWAR FRAME, THE PREWAR WWII SPRINGER
    STEER TUBES ARE TYPICALLY MEASURED FROM BOTTOM OF RACE TO TOP
    OF STEER TUBE: 6 1/2 TO 6 5/8 INCHES: 7 1/2 TO 7 5/8 INCH AND 8 1/2 TO 8 5/8
    INCH STEER TUBES.

    the 41 girls fork steer tube measures 7 1/4 inches bottom of bearing race to top of threads. my 41 boys measures 6 1/4 inches. those are truss rod fork measures. think add 1/4" for the springers still need to find these springers!!

    I'm not sure what you are talking about here. The fork stop is a small tube welded on the frame of the bike not the fork. It has a small rubber bumper on each end. V/r Shawn
