INTRODUCTION – How many of you are familiar with the proverb that says, “There’s more than one way to skin a cat”? Well, if you’re you’re trying to clean up the front end of your Road Glide, this same proverb holds true. You really don’t have to spend half a grand on one-piece fork legs to get the one-piece look. There IS another way, and it’s a lot less expensive. Allow me to introduce you to a few products from Klock Werks that will clean up the front end of your Road Glide, and not clean out your pockets–Klock Werks Fork-N-Finish and the Flush Mount Axle.
THE DETAILS – Klock Werks Fork-N-Finish is made in the US from CNC machined aluminum and is available in show chrome or in a black powder coat finish. Counter sunk mounting hardware is included, giving you that clean one piece fork leg appearance. The Flush Mount Axle, which Klock Werks claims is two times stronger than the stock axle, is made from stress proof steel and coated in black nitrate to prevent corrosion. The Flush Mount Axle also features a polished stainless steel end cap, which can also be ordered in a black powder coat finish.
OUR THOUGHTS – These two products by Klock Werks were just what the doctor ordered to clean up our Road Glide’s front end. Both pieces very easy to install and the instructions provided were straight to the point. The quality of both pieces were great. We feel that the Fork-N-Finish is really the best way to go to about tidying up the right fork leg. Now we’ve seen others use fancy caps to try and mask the two bolts that secure the bottom fork piece, but that method doesn’t address the real issue–and that is, that you still have two bolts protruding out of the bottom of your fork leg. The Fork-N-Finish addresses that issue by replacing protruding bolts with allen head bolts that are flush with the bottom fork piece. Nothing sticking out anymore–clean, simple solution. The Flush Mount Axle is an excellent solution to the obnoxiously ugly stock axle, which protrudes out both sides of the front wheel. This piece really does improve the entire look the front wheel. Overall, we were extremely pleased with how these two Klock Werks pieces cleaned up or Road Glide’s front end.
CONCLUSION – MyRoadGlide.com highly recommends both of these Klock Werks products. Instead of spending half a grand on one-piece fork legs, you can spend a fraction of that with the Klock Werks Fork-N-Finish and Flush Mount Axle and still get a very similar result. We’re confident you’ll be pleased with the quality of these two products, and with the amount of money you end up saving yourself.
