15/10/2019: Leading link forks for Harley outfit

The owner of this very smart and eyecatching Harley Davidson outfit wanted greater stability under braking and more precise steering with reduced effort.

With the original telescopic forks fitted, you did need arms like Popeye to negotiate corners and were constantly fighting the bike for straight line stability.

The answer was quite simple, to fit a pair of our own custom leading link forks. By building from the ground up, in collaboration with our customer, the rake, trail, spring rates and damping can be set up to suit perfectly the rider, the type of riding they do and the loads that they carry.

The conversion used Hagon spring/damper units along with a Honda front wheel and brakes.
