    Is anyone familiar with this fork? The only way I have been able to remove the front wheel is to back out the axel. This a main pain in the butt. Does anyone know of another way without damaging the fork. I hope I never get a flat!

    I have no idea, but that is one heck of a bike!

    You may be able to use a skewer front wheel for easy removal. Other than that, cutting some slots below the axle hole would allow you to remove a the wheel as it is done on the cantilever (springer) forks. That is a rare, desireable fork you have.

    I have the same fork, you are going to have to go at one of the dropouts with a grinder to make it any easier!~

    I could try one, but more than likley I will have to do both, as I might not be able to tilt the wheel enough to extract the the other end of the axle.
    I'm not sure if it will compromise the strength or operation of the fork itself.
    Have you already taken a grinder to one droupout?

    I bought the frame because I fell in love with the springer, may be time for a divorce.

    They are similar but different. I will assume that they are an older version.
    Do you have the pivot linkages and hardened bushing for that setup?

    No. I don't, you? Got a pic?

    No but I will take some the next time I take it apart. The hardest part to duplicate is the two(hardened) axle bushings.
