All motorcycle enthusiasts realize the necessity of smooth steering for our vintage rides and verbalized a lack of quality replacement parts. Replicant Metals has enlisted the services of renowned metallurgists, machinists and platers to provide the absolute best.
It was painstaking process with extreme attention to detail and nomenclature of metals and surfaces. We compared several OEM samples and evaluated their dimensions and qualities, consulted with the most educated enthusiasts and attained a homogenized formula for limited production. We chose 1018 steel for its ability to machine crisp details with clean surfaces and to achieve Rockwell 60 on bearing surfaces without making the balance brittle.
After powder blast removing residues from hardening, all components were cadmium plated to +.0005 and heat conditioned to eliminate hydrogen embrittlement. The top cone knurled edge is crisp and aggressive, the races are accurately formed to accept the profile of the 5/16” balls, the thread pitch screws firmly on OEM fork neck. An exceptionally accurate part worthy for your vintage machine.
