Thread: Early front fork springs

  1. #1

    Question Early front fork springs

    Should anyone have a source for oem or repopped springs for the 26 through early 29 front forks.
    I need a couple of sets and have come up empty to date.
    If noone is making them and there is enough need/interest in new ones, please voice your desires here and perhaps together we could get a run of them produced at a reasonable cost.
    Thanks for looking.
    I can also be reached at 750uhv via gmail if you likewise find the pm system a pita.

    Wrong springs Chris. He is talking springs for "B" single forks.

    Good afternoon,
    I think Centuryspring.com may have what you need. They have an online catalogue and maybe one of the 2" OD springs will work for the lower. I see a couple that are close. I do not have the springs off of mine, but I think they are 2" OD and about 4 1/2" to 5" tall with .250" wire. I am not sure of the correct size for the top. I found some springs that were close and used a torch to change the top to be right.
    Good luck.

    They do not have one that is exact, may be able to try one with a close wire size and longer that could be cut and the end redone.

    Thanks for your input. With the resounding response, I will likely resort to like tactics. It is for a race bike so function is the only concern. They don't have to be exact in appearance.
    If noone else needs any, I'll just cut down a later set of springs for my needs.
