WANTED:   Info re: springer fork for a 1952 Firestone Super Cruiser bicycle posted by: Bob on 12/23/2006 at 2:30:53 PM
I have a 1952 Firestone Super Cruiser bicycle which I am currently restoring. The only item on the bike which I can not remove is the chrome cover which is located on top of the springer fork. The fork appears to have been assembled in two parts, however, I have not been able to separate/unscrew the two parts in order to remove the chrome cover which is badly pitted/dented. Any advice in this regard would be greatly appreciated. Thank you...

I believe you need to take a very thin screw driver and gently pry the bottom fork race up and slide it up and off the steering tube. Then you should be able to remove the cover - I think it is just sitting over the top of the fork.

Does the Fleet have a tank? If so I might be interested.

I don't know anything about them, but I have two of them. Both girls bikes, one has 26 inch wheels the other 24 inch. The 24 inch I got fromt the original owner and it is in very nice shape, missing only the fender light.

I just picked up one today - and I'm very curious about what the original front and rear fender lights looked like. I thought it was a baloon tire bike when I bought it (bike store going out of business), but it wasn't wearing them. Where do I start looking for parts? Mines got intact decals on the "tank" but the decals on the chain guard "custom deluxe" is kinda' rusty. Reminds me of my big sister's bike that I learned to ride on as a kid.
