    wanting to make my own spring fork. any ideas

    id like to make a custom old school spring fork for my bike. ive done some digging about on the web but was lucky to find a picture that look like something id like



    id like to do something like this but this looks like the spring would be able to pivot at the single bolt.

    if anybody has any good ideas please share with me.
    There's just something to be said for a cruiser that can play like a mountain bike or run with the pack of ss/fg road bikes or be a good commuter or be a utility bike and pull a trailer or just cruise around like theres no care but the joy of a leisure ride.

    Your correct,it would pivot.Weld a "T" bar just in front of the fork(on the spring) and use it as a light mount.
