Larger Triple Chrome Plated Springs. Larger, triple chrome plated springs, which provide much smoother action. Springs on our previous version were smaller and only zinc plated. These new springs add to the beauty and function of the fork.
Springs are made by O'hare Spring Co. And are plated by Angelus Plating. Top Plate is chromed by Angelus Plating and buffed to a show quality mirror finish. Laser Cut Gauge Stainless Steel Bottom Rockers.Type 2 rockers are now laser cut from 3/16 stainless steel. The axle slot openings are sized for modern axles. We now use Brass Bushings inserted into the rockers for unbelievably smooth action. They look really good too! For use on all 1 inch threaded bicycle frames that will allow for a 7 inch or shorter steering tube length. The steering tube is 7 inches overall which includes 2 inches of threads that can be cut to size for a custom fit, or shimmed.
Adapters are available to use on newer 1 1/8 threadless frames. What is the difference between the Type 1 and Type 2 Monark Springer Fork?The only difference is the rocker. The Type 2 rocker is made from laser cut 3/16 thick stainless steel, and has axle cutouts made for larger, modern axles. The Type 1 rocker is made from 1/8 inch plated steel, is the same as was used on the vintage Monark fork. For motorized and anticipated heavy use, we recommend the Monark Type 2 which is what is offered here.
