I am looking for a fork spring, from any bike really, to use as a lifting spring on a gate. Like this one:

All the ones available online like this only travel about 3.5".

So if you have a set that you took out but couldn't throw away because you knew they would be needed one day- now is your chance! Let me know what you have.

Dude, you need a whole fork leg - 2 wheels.

I have a couple also. They were some sort of aftermarket spring for an old Concours that someone left at my house.

Just wanted to give a public thanks to mactex! Sent me a set of springs and won't let me pay him for the shipping. When we meet I owe you a couple beers!

Thanks!!
