I totally missed this build, this is fantastic. Just saw it in finished bikes.

What are you using for spring material?

I have a springer fork idea using a trailer leaf spring cut down, others have done it too so I'm not claiming it. But it will be heavy. Material you used may be an option.

Yep, G-10 AKA Garolite. Basically fiberglass. I looked around for the best price and believe it or not Mcmaster-carr was better than everyone.
