Cafe Racers Rule

Posted by on Mar 11, 2011 in Product | Comments Off on Cafe Racers Rule


We’re loving the new wave of Cafe Racers. The style is hardly new (dating to the 60’s), but the builds of recent have been some of the best, most detailed and creative customs we’ve ever seen. This lovely example comes to use from Crowe Customs in Oregon. That being said, we’d like you to take a look at our Vintage Series of shocks. These are sold as dampers and springs separately and can be custom set up to your bike. Need really tall shocks for your Cafe? Maybe something slammed for a classic build? Not a problem. Take a look and give us a call.

Posted by on Mar 2, 2011 in New Products | Comments Off on Progressive Suspension – Monotube Fork Cartridge Kit for Softails!


High performance front suspension is finally available for the intrepid Softail models. Progressive Suspension’s state of the art Monotube Fork Kit is designed for the performance oriented rider who demands both handling and ride quality out of their bike. The kit replaces all of the sloppy open bath internals of the stock fork with a set of gas charged Monotube dampers and custom tuned fork springs in both stock and lowered versions.

Monotube style damping improves ride comfort, resistance to front brake dive as well as improving front end stability, cornering and bottoming control. The kit fits most 2000 though 2011 HD Softail model forks, and replaces all of the internal parts. Converts dual Damper rod to true high performance Monotube damping! No mods are required and install is relatively simple.  For more info check it out here:
