In collaboration with Perse Performance, RoosteR Custom Motorcycles is releasing this throwback classic suspension with some modern twists. First, the company worked closely with Penske’s engineering department to provide the best shock for a variety of riding styles and feels. From his experience with Racing, Penske has conceived several models to meet every rider need. It goes from the PS-8900 shock, a single adjustable, low cost, entry level shock to the PS-8970 model coming directly from Formula One and able to separate high and low speed compression adjustment like no other shocks on the market.
Second, the 1 inch diameter steering stem is cut from the toughest stainless steel available and designed to ensure that all of the turning torque from the handle bars was transmitted through the steering stem, and not through the suspension. This was accomplished by splining the steering stem shaft where it passes through the upper triple tree. Third, for safety, the axle has been another point of design attention. Like the steering stem, the axle is cut from the hardest stainless,got left hand threads with added security vis set screws to prevent unintentional back out. Finally, the major components are secured with spanner style fasteners. This theme is repeated throughout the front end to provide continuity as well as offering an appearance not found on other front ends on the market.
This New School Vintage front end can be built to suit any frame configuration, as well as a complete bolt on kit for all HD Sportster models. This front end is available in polished stainless steel as well as standard DOM tubing with a powder coated finish.
