Our 3rd generation of this very popular and famous springer fork represents the strongest and highest quality fork of this type made anywhere today. This fork rides as well as it looks. Considered by many to be. "THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SPRINGER EVER PRODUCED". Built in our Santa Monica, California shop since 2006 with all US made stainless steel hardware.QUALITY IS REMEMBERED LONG AFTER PRICE IS FORGOTTEN. After offering the reproduced Monark Springer Fork for over 14 years, we listened to our customers, implemented the changes they wanted, and are now offering this much improved version of the original.
Beefed up and reinforced welding of all structural members, this fork is now suitable for standard and motorized bike applications. Larger Triple Chrome Plated Springs. Larger, triple chrome plated springs, which provide much smoother action. Springs on our previous version were smaller and only zinc plated. These new springs add to the beauty and function of the fork.
Springs are made by O'hare Spring Co. And are plated by Angelus Plating. Top Plate is chromed by Angelus Plating and buffed to a show quality mirror finish. Rockers come with Brass Bushings.
We now use Brass Bushings inserted into the rockers for unbelievably smooth action. They look really good too! Headset/Bearing Race Now included (1 x 32.5 x 26.4). For use on all 1 inch threaded bicycle frames that will allow for a 7 inch or shorter steering tube length. The steering tube is 7 inches overall which includes 2 inches of threads that can be cut to size for a custom fit, or shimmed.
Adapters are available to use on newer 1 1/8 threadless frames. What is the difference between the Type 1 and Type 2 Monark Springer Fork?The only difference is the rocker. The Type 2 rocker is made from laser cut 3/16 thick stainless steel, and has axle cutouts made for larger, modern axles. The Type 1 rocker is made from 1/8 inch plated steel, is the same as was used on the vintage Monark fork.
