Premier Trikes, Inc. builds our own forks, or can supply them in an unassembled form. We also offer used motorcycle forks. From our experience in building front engine trikes, you need to have a heavy duty fork to hold the 600-800 pounds in the front. However in building VW and other rear engine trikes, we have found that a 750cc or larger motorcycle fork should be good.
Premier Airide Fork (Part Number: RARF-A, and RARF-U for unassembled)
The Premier Airide Fork utilizes high strength roller bearings, a heavy duty air bladder, and greaseless fiberglass bushings to polish the stainless steel slides. Our fork is built like our frames, over built to support any engine or frame weight a trike builder might decide to use. The Premier Airide Fork can be supplied in either assembled, or in raw form which requires welding.
Used Motorcycle Forks
In the course of our business we have come to have several different motorcycle forks from different years. Call or email us to inquire about our current inventory.
Neck and Bearings
A heavy wall neck with bearing cups, bearings, and top and bottom seals. We can custom build to any length to fit your application.
3/4" Thick solid aluminum wheel, polished to a mirror finish. This wheel is stronger than the normal motorcycle wheel, which makes it a better option when building a front engine trike.
