Because I had a budget for this beach cruiser that I built, I chose to use some strong, nice looking inexpensive tube forks. Chrome seems to go with everything and it would save me time and work on paint, so I decided on these chrome tube forks that look nice. Ther’es just your basic forks but they look awesome. I wish I had some 80’s vintage Tange forks like on the motorized cruiser that I built but I’m stoked enough with these. Just my luck the ball bearing cone wouldn’t fit so I had to file the forks around that bottom part of the fork stem. Not that big of a deal but like I said, just my luck, ha. Anyway, cutting the fork tube to length went fine and I was very pleased and the forks fit perfect.
