springer fork for mini?

I didn't buy the Manko. Too small. But great price. I do have a question. Anyone seen a springer fork for a mini? I know you want photos but I am not too hot on computers. Anyway the guy built a custom springer fork and I did get that and a frame. Unusual?

It depends on your definition of 'springer forks'...

Several people have told me they have springers on their minibike, and they meant external springs over sliding lower tubes...

The pics below are my definition of springer forks...

That's it. The one with the single spring. The parts are a little different but as you can imagine same concept. I picked it and a old frame up for 50. I think the fork is worth that. Now just need to find right bearings and axle and wheels and.....

Well I have a good one for just about any mini bike and it is from a Mark IV Rogue Mini Bike I show it with different size wheels. And it's for sale with or without a wheel and axle.

I'll be building a similar leading link setup on an extra set of DB forks I have, I did some sprung ones with the lowers like Yellowhand refered to. My brother said man you got springer forks! I told him they were merely sprung and showed him the intricate ones in Yellowhand's pics. He now knows what springers are. These are sprung forks I built from two sets of forks, the lowers came from some Arco forks with beyond bent bars.

There's a guy in Detroit who has a Mark IV on Craigslist right now. $500

mini bike 60"s mark 4

Pretty cool looking. I bet that front end sure is smooth on the trails!
