    Recommend a fork builder

    I'm thinking about having a fork built for my Pro Cruiser. Can anyone recommend a good frame builder? I've emailed Inglis/Retrotec & Hunter. Also feel free to direct me to the proper forum if needs be. Thanks!

    Check out Willits or Steve Potts. Willits has some really cool stuff.

    Thanks, BigLimey, but the 2Vicious website says they don't do customs(I need a fork w/a 1" BMX-size steerer). Still looking for Willitts...

    there's tons out there these days, but badger has caught my eye... his lugged & fillet brazed forks are pretty tasty!

    Seems like a lot of trouble to go to. There is a killer Cook Bros 26" fork on the bay righ tnow that would be a nice fit on that bike. I'm not sure how your's is set up but a CBR fork with a drum brake would be pretty trick on a ProCruiser. Good luck.

    Badger or WaltWorks

    I recommend Badger or WaltWorks. They both build custom forks. I have one of each and really like both of them

    Both Rob and Walt are great to work with.

    Oh yes, I know this 'ebay' thing you speak of..
    I am many times perusing, & I am familiar w/the aforementioned CBR fork. In fact, I had a CBR on that bike for awhile( about # 3 in a series of 8-10)- I bent it severely. I wouldn't mind putting it on, but I have a full set of Mafac cantis & lots of other 'period correct' items earmarked for the mighty Pro Cruiser.
    And trouble? Trouble is my middle... well actually it's my kids' title, but I digress. Iwill also check Walt & Badger(coolest name so far).
