G15CS Fork Springs

Postby GSM » Tue Mar 12, 2019 11:27 am

My 1967 / 68 G15CS has internal and external springs on the Roadholders. It rides like a pogo stick!. Am I correct in thinking it should have either internal or external springs? If so what is correct?

One pal has a G15/45 and another a G15 CSR which don't have external ('external' :? ) springs. I've never had Roadholders but here are two techy articles which may help:

The Spares List for AMC Hybrids (Roadholder forks) lists only the usual 'main' and 'buffer' springs which are internal:

Your '68 G15CS should have internal springs only.

Note there are lots of options to improve Roadholder forks. You may ant to read up on the subject at AccessNorton.com .
