Resilient fork links, 2-3/4hp
« on: 23 Jul 2014 at 02:48 »
The following aftermarket resilient fork links was seen on a 2-3/4hp for sale here in the USA:



There were previous posts showing a Terry's accessory spring link. The originator of that topic was simply asking about plain veteran links but got a diversion into spring links! Since that was really a question about plain links, I have not appended this to that thread; rather starting anew. But here is a link back to that topic as a reference.

The 'spring box' depicted above look significantly more substantial (and expensive to make) than the Terrys springs.

Hi Doug,
I don't have any comments on the resilient fork links, but coincidentally a friend sent me today the link to more pictures of the same Douglas !.

Ian,

Yes, he bike was apparently sold at the recent AMCA 2014 Wauseon meet. The Greyhound was also for sale by a different vendor. I did not go myself, but a someone else took some pictures of the Dougies for me.
