With motorcycles, and choppers especially, trying to standout of the crowd more and more people are thinking of changing the front end of there bike.
We looked at a 49mm front end, this beefy 49mm front end can be used on a custom or stock frame. It features large diameter, 4130 chrome molly steel fork tubes that improve steering input, as well as reduce fork tube flex and twist, which is a chronic problem on extended forks using stock diameter tubes.
The fork springs are progressively wound from special silicon wire, which gives a smooth, controlled ride. There's also a build-in lowering kit that allows you to fine-tune the overall length of the front end as well as the fork travel.As for the one-piece construction, solid billet, aircraft-grade, 6061-T aluminum lower legs, they feature a teardrop upper section and a four-sided tapered shape near the concealed axle covers.
And the brake and fender brackets are part of the lower legs, not bolted on. This front end comes with wide glide-style, solid billet, aircraft-grade, 6061-T aluminum triple trees, which have full radius styling and a new wraparound pinch bolt system.
These trees will accept internal fork stops and are machined to 25.06cm, center-to-center (CTC). Raked trees are also available. This front end is available in chrome or a polished black anodized finish, in a single- or dual-disc configuration. You can get it in standard lengths for stock Harley-Davidson frames, as well as up to 25.4cm over for chopper applications. Even longer custom lengths are available by special order.
