    I seem to remember seeing a quick release rim on a springer fork but I can not find it. Has anyone done this before? Are there any draw backs?

    Personally I wouldnt myself... because the QR skewer is always going to be weaker than a bar axle and bolts set up..

    Its entirely possible... but I wouldnt say advisable. The more tolerance you build in the better and a front wheel axle/skewer breaking at 30mph is not something you would want to experience.
