New Kiwi Leaf Spring Forks

Today at the Cincinnati Show I stopped by the Kiwi Indian MotorCycle Company display and stumbled on the bike called Rocket that Mike built for the Sturgis Michael Lichter’s exhibition called “One World”.  The bike is pretty cool, but noticeable to me was the new leaf spring forks with custom Heim joints on the front connecting links attaching to the leaf pack. This version creates a smaller open area between the tire and leaf pack. Mike Tomas explained to me that his new forks creation come with a 1” neck stem for a direct no fuss fit to Harley, after market and British frames and accept wheels from 16” to 23” diameters. A top crown is offered as an option to accept any style aftermarket handlebars. Kiwi’s forks are made in house with extensive jigging and TIG welded for the highest quality possible which can be found on many award winning bikes around the world. Forks come in bare steel finish and accept left or right side brakes. Kiwi Indian MotorCycle Company or info@kiwiindian.com.

    This spring leaf looks very nice. Can we get a close up picture?

    Cyril, as mikes east coast distributor for these front ends, and also a builder that uses them, the new setup is extremely comfortable in it’s and gives any bike that “cool” factor so many people seek.
    Our newest build, based off of USChoppers street platform, uses Kiwi’s front end and we’re anxious to see it rolling down the road. The research, quality and craftsmanship that Mike puts into the leaf spring front end far exceeds any other front end i’ve seen available, Plus, the price point is excellent too.

    Kiwi Mike’s forks are hot! A good buddy of mine has just brought the first set down to Australia for a Panhead bobber he is building. They are extremely well engineered and even in the shop where the bike is being built they draw considerable attention. Onya Mike!

    I’ve always been a fan of custom bikes! Where can I find some more pictures or information on the ‘Rocket’ bike? It rocks!
