I'm looking at the 2010 sales book and it says the Kingpin has inverted forks, single disc and an 18 inch wheelNo its not.
The Kingpin and Hammer share the same inverted front end but the Kingpin rides on a 21 and the Hammer on an 18 inch wheel. Also, the Hammer has DUAL disk brakes up front compared to the single set up for the Kingpin.
where can you find the forks from the hammer? I also wouldnt mind the rear shock from a hammer as well. I heard the suspension setup is much better and maybe cheaper to go this route vs all aftermarket parts for my vegas.Here is my Vegas with hammer front end 21 in wheel also.
Fantastic, you got a bargain there,I went with the KP front end on my '04 Vegas, and wow what a difference. Even with the old 80/90 front tire, the bike feels 100% stiffer in tight turns, and in big sweeping curves. I found my premium KP front end (forks, tripples, and bearings) new on clearance on eBay, still in factory packaging for $430 shipped.
The bike is still lowered for crusing, but I'm considering a Hammer rear shock, lift links, and 18" front wheel to make it turn a little better... I haven't made up my mind yet.
