I believe that's a Rollfast.

Just snagged this ladies Columbia with a Springer fork. I was able to get the stem out without any trouble, but the headset stuff is giving me fits. It's soaking in the sun with PB Blaster right now. Hopefully it'll loosen up, and I'm even more hopeful that my wide front wheel will fit in there🤞🤞

If I can't get the headset loose, I'll just cut it off and weld a new steering tube in place. IF I can get it loose, and IF my wheel fits, AND IF the steer tube is too long, I'll just make a spacer to take up the slack.

That's a really cool springer collection, thanks for humoring me. I get excited about things sometimes. Someday, I dream of finding one of these...

It's a different kind of spring, but the idea is basically the same as your design
