How much travel do the EBR forks have?
I'm shopping Treats for a set to put on my '78 Swinger and I think I've figured out that the Peugeot/Hobbit/Bravo forks will fit... I think. I come from a motorcycle background and am struggling with the terminology a little. Mopeds are this weird mish-mash of bicycle and motorcycle!
220mm head tube, 60mm is threaded (or is this 220mm plus 60mm of thread for a total of 280mm?) and total 24" long, which makes them about 3" longer than I need them, I think.
Moped sites outline "head tube" length. Treats says measure the headset length. On a bicycle the "head tube" is the forward most part of the frame that a steering tube or 'steerer' passes through. It holds the bearing races.
On a motorcycle it's the headset or steering head, that a steering stem/column or yoke stem/column passes through.
Are they calling the yoke stem/column the 'head tube' in this instance? And the length of it is from the lower yoke to the end of the threaded portion, right? And of that total length, 60mm is threaded, not plus 60mm?
The Swinger 1 seems to have just under 21" fork legs and depending on terminology a 140mm headset and a 170 or 175mm yoke stem.
Anyone have a link to a manual or exploded view of these forks? Parts list? What model they are?
