What's the best front end I can install on my bobber.
At this moment I have an DNA springer ( I know DNA suck)
My set up is:
David bird hard tail 2.5 drop +4 stretch
DNA -2
I like the actual line of my bike but I want an inverted front end

Any suggestions?

Inverted front ends tend to have large stem diam. unless they are or a dirt bike , but then they are very long .


Why do you want to run a inverted fork set up ? I f you say handling then that makes no sense since the bike is hard tailed . So i'm guesing looks then right ? IU would go to a salvage yard and fin one the right legth that has a removable stearing stem . So you can have a new one made to fit ypur neck . The axle and brakes set up wil be so me work unless you plan on running the wheel that came with the front end since they usaully have like 22 mm or larger axles in a inverted fork .

It's only for the look
I want a mix of modern bike and vintage
I want to keep the front wheel with mini drum.
Changing handle bar for clip-on.
I thinking about that but it's not a idee fixe if you, guys, have better suggestions I can change my mind

why not get a girder? or a stock fork with MCM covers?

i know everyone has different ideas, but modern, inverted forks look like ass on vintage bikes MOST of the time.

i think the best look for your bike would be a late 60's triumph front end with fork gaiters.


would compliment your bike's stance very well, too.

I think you're right guy I'll swap for a stock fork with gaiters

Just my two cents but I think a leaf front end would look bitchen.
