B-17 Inverted Forks
The B17 fork utilizes our patented perimeter valve technology. This complete fork includes: chrome forklegs, chrome smooth top trees, axle, stem, chrome brake caliper, hidden brake line, and a hidden hardware kit (hides axle, steering stem, and headlight bolt). The padlock brake caliper is integrated into the lower fork leg. Brake caliper may be used on right or left side interchangeably. Made with 1-7/8 (45mm) High strength steel inner tube, and 2-1/2 (63mm) high strength outer tube. Our trees are machined from 1-1/2 thick 6061-T6 aircraft grade aluminum billet.
B-17 Inverted forks feature massive 2.5 chrome plated outer tubes. Reduced flex is the key to precise handling and a smooth ride over big bumps. Long and low choppers really benefit from the rigidity of the B-17 when ridden at high speed. The massive B-17 outer tubes combine with solid billet trees to provide asolid ride and good looks.The heart of the fork is the valving system. Most other inverted forks use an ordinary cartridge system whose valving piston diameter is less than 1-1/4 inches.
