* You can lessen the cost by selling your heavy, outdated front suspension (1948 Hydro Glide type)
front forks, calipers, rotors, and triple trees. If you have a Road King, the headlight nacelle will not fit our trees.

Advantages of an Inverted Front Fork

* This front end solves the problem of a stock loose and uncontrollable front end that puts a lump in your throat when hitting those cracks at exit ramp speed off of the freeway.

* Ask for list of options available for this great unit.
* Install Motorcycle Metal’s inverted front end assembly on your FL, FXR, Dyna, Sportster, or Softail.
* Our solution utilizes your stock 2000 & up Wide Glide front wheel with sealed 1” bearing. If you do not use the recommended FL front wheel, other hubs/wheels may be used. Address centering the wheel to match the measurements of a Wide Glide Hub. Spacers must align up the wheel on the axle along with the rotor(s). Centering of the wheel & caliper is a must.
* If you have a Wide Glide wheel, it is a straight bolt up. 2 rotors & calipers are recommended for any bike.
* 320 mm front rotors should be used for extreme braking. I do not prefer using a 11 1/2" rotor. If you do adapters must be made and the braking will degrade due to the smaller disk.
* I only make Hi-Performance parts, function over form every time!
* These inverted front ends are fully adjustable and can give a most comfortable ride, just turn the screwdriver, adjust on the fly availing the option of the handling of a sport bike minus the ground clearance.
