    The 1960's Murray forks are not uncommon. I believe at that stage in Murray's manufacture, the girl's fork may have been the same as boy's (not sure).

    You may wish to find a (perhaps non-original) springer fork as on the top-of-the-line (Sears) space-liner version of those 1960's space bikes?
    Above, what I did, was upgrade to a fork with chrome rack and chrome crown.

    I saw others at way-lower prices, some did not say what size. Remember there is a 26 lightweight that may not meet your needs (26 x 1-3/8"); these Murray's were 26 middleweights (26 x 1.75"). I also saw a space-liner springer for about $100.

    Hi Ralph,
    What's going on with the front hub? It looks like a Sturmey Archer dyno drum brake, but with a disc brake attached to it?
    Nice looking bike! Do you have other plans after changing the fork?
