The Monark Silver King springer really needs some work, especially with one of the shock studs that is loose. It definitely needs welded. I have this JC Higgins Beehive Springer that is my backup. I’m undecided on the final way to go.View attachment 264204View attachment 264205


I'll steal this from @BobbyStillz

This should be a beautiful build no matter which fork you use.
 
I put solid rods in the middle of the springs on one of my builds to remove the spring motion entirely. I don't like the bobbing up and down when out of the saddle pedaling, but I like the look.
 
I just got lucky and scored a nice collection of beehive springer parts! An eBay seller luckily took my offer on this collection and has taken some stress away from my build. I would like to use the Monark springer but it needs some welding, some straightening and some rethreading to make it work. This collection has several rocker brackets that I needed to complete the beehive I have. Seeing the “Pay Now” had me all excited.

Diggin' the tank!
Thanks! I felt it needed one. Feels naked otherwise ✌🏻

Thank you for the tip! I like some motion but not sure how this springer will feel. ✌🏻

I'm not a fan of soft springers. An alternative to fitting the solid rods is to shim the springs and do the nut up further which passes through the springs. I did this on a Schwinn springer and it stiffened the fork considerably.
Thank you for the tip! If I can get it functioning I will try that out. ✌🏻
 
Tank is looking cool. Great parts score too.
