    Hi, just installed a springer fork, and now noticed that there is nothing to screw the quill stem into. The previous fork had a whole inside that you screwed it into to lock into place. This springer fork just has a round bar inside of it almost at the bottom. Do I need to do something to the fork, like drill a hole in it or are their handlebar stems that will work with this type of fork that I could get? Thanks

    It's a Pyramid springer fork by the way. Fits fine otherwise, just can't screw in the handlebars into the steering tube. Which makes steering a bit tricky :)

    nevermind, I'm an idiot. The wedge for the quill was stuck in the other fork.

    Not an idiot.......we all have overlooked the simple things.
