Any chance of an old motorcycle question section?  Say 25 years or older?

That Simpson at the start to the left is a strange bird.  No brakes of any form, fat front tyre with heavy front wheel.  Only interesting thing was the leading link suspension system.  This system was also call Earl suspension fork by Ariel with its one year of production & same when BMW had the same in calling it a Earls front fork.  I think even BMW gave up the leading link suspension for something better in mind.

On competition dirt bike like DOT to Greeves with the same we all called them leading link forks, for in some past years a few makers went to trailing link suspension that was a flop.



Remember all the others on the road are crazy & out to kill you.
