    Fox Sundowner Upstate NY Here's my Fox Sundowner. It's a pretty neat bike and fun to ride with those big spoked wheels. Still not quite at 100% but I've exhausted my mechanical abilities. A couple issues: Hard to start when engine hot Front forks are...

    Open up internal front springs?

    Will do. Have to see if I can straighten the bars first. Not shown in these photos, but they're bent 10 degrees or so.

    Open up internal front springs?

    Turns out bottom caps on the upper forks are threaded and just spin off with a pipe wrench. The springs are 12" long by 3/4" diameter and need to be twisted out of each side. I've got a broken piece stuck down in one of the lowers, but going to try the sprinkler head removal tool technique...

    Fox Sundowner?

    I think this is a Fox Sundowner based on pictures I've seen here and elsewhere. Previous owner did a lot of mods on it - 3 sets of foot pegs, really? I'd like to know if the Sundowner came with this style of internal spring forks. All the pics I've seen have external springs.
