Fork spacing?
« on: February 20, 2015, 09:55:07 PM »
I know this is a dumb question that I should be able to measure for myself, but I don't have a caliper quite large enough and can't think of a way to improvise a measurement of the round tubes quite exactly enough for my needs.

So can anyone determine/share if you know the center-to-center spacing of the fork tubes for the Bullet?

Thanks!

6 3/4" is the best I could ever come up with on my twin.

It is possible the shop at work has a vernier big enough to encompass both stanchions at the farthest points...subtracting 35mm from that should yield the dead-on center to center, no?

Am hoping it is 172mm, which is damned close to 6 3/4".  Couple of fork brace options in that spacing.

I think 172mm is what the guy at Fast From The Past said to use.

Yeah, I need a new brake arm for my rearset anyhow, so I will get one through him for a trial run while I am at it.
