Using state of the art CNC machinery, you can call on Lumley Engineering for prototype, test run or short run production volumes of project or test parts. Once viability has been established, your production runs of components can be made just as simply. Visitors from Alston Sutton are always welcome in our Somerset workshop.
For specialist markets such as motorsport and vehicle restoration, we have the facilities and expertise to make one-off and replica components. Even if you are not local, many parts can be made as one-off items or short-run production components from your drawings, patterns or templates emailed or posted to us from the Alston Sutton area.Photo from Featured Project near Alston Sutton
Bespoke Leading Link Front Forks
If you're serious about sidecar outfits, the only way forward at the front is leading link forks. For more accurate steering with less effort and more predictable suspension behaviour under braking, the leading link fork outperforms telescopic forks every time for sidecar or trike use.
Better still, if the forks are custom made for your bike and sidecar, taking into account their weight, your weight, how often you carry passengers and your likely luggage load, you can be fairly sure that your outfit will handle like a dream in comparison.
Every set of forks that comes out of the Lumley Engineering workshop is tailored to the customer, their bike and the way they use it. This ground-up build philosophy also gives you the chance to choose your perfect combination of wheels tyres and brakes, once the constraints of original telescopic forks has been removed.
You can also be very happy if you have a need for speed. Take a look at the project page for Dave Langley's sprint Yamaha Fazer outfit, complete with our own custom lightweight sidecar and leading link forks.
The best news is that this kind of bespoke work needn't cost a fortune either. Pop down to the workshop for a consultation and measurement visit and we will be happy to quote you for creating the perfect front end for your outfit or trike.
