i actually ment i need a straight bar tank not a frame... i did get my tank just today.... my bike is really coming along... it would be nice to know if the old style sringer forks came with a three inch space between the fork legs... i would like to make a daily driver with the widest tires i can possibly stuff in thier...... i also need the biggest skip tooth heart sprocket possible.... it should be eguivelant to 54 teeth if im not mistaken

I~ve been watching for an answer on this one. I bet Mark Smith (bunchobikes) could help. Catalog/parts list from the late fifties show that springers were available for both types. If nothing else, we can start measuring. I have ballooners with springers, but not midweights; I bet they were going out of fashion and will be rarer. Anybody got a springer middleweight?
