The front end is centered around a Penske shock, which after consultation with Penske’s engineering department was decided upon as the best choice by RoosteR. Two options of shock are being offered; the entry level PS-8900 or the PS-8970, which separates high- and low-speed compression adjustment.
The fork itself can be ordered in polished stainless steel, powder-coated DOM steel tubing, or raw DOM tubing. All three versions use stainless steel fittings. The 1in diameter steering stem is cut from 17-4 precipitation hardened stainless and it has been designed to ensure that all of the turning torque from the handlebars is transmitted through it and not through the suspension. RoosteR achieved this solution by splining the steering stem shaft where it passes through the upper triple tree. For the lower end, a 3⁄4in shaft is threaded into each side of the lower tree and pins into the steering stem.
RoosteR’s New School Vintage Classic front end is available to fit all Sportsters as a bolt-on kit and can be ordered to suit any frame combination for custom applications.
