New Neo-Retro Front End

knuckledraggerfrontendBecause so many of you are building a new custom bike in the style of yesterday, the after-market front-end business is in full “Retro-Volution” (I have to trademark this new word)).

One more example is this “KnuckleDragger” front end from Lightning Rod Motorcycles. It features double tube style fork legs both for good looks and strength and uses 2 fully adjustable gas shocks. To make your life easier it comes with the headlight and stone guard, and can be ordered with or without the custom bars custom made specifically for this front end. It fits Harley-Davidson style necks and is offered in stock HD length. It uses a 3/4 front axle and is available in raw steel only. It’s up to you to chrome, paint or powdercoat it. Lighting Rod Motorcycles.

    Not sure about this one. The design would cause the front-end geometry change every time you hit a bump in the road. It might give a whole new meaning to bump steer.

    Looking very nice.

    Why only stock length?

    I like the way it looks, but would like somebody who used it to state how it rides versus a traditional stock Harley Springer.

    Rake and trail changes with every bump. It won’t ride near as well as the traditional type.

    This front end is very unique. Not designed for the trac, but Very muscular looking and functional.Great job Steve and Rick

    Wow dude- headlight mounted to the SPRUNG end? That’s gotta be quite the light show…… How long does a bulb survive?
