Bill: My father had a '48 125S back in the early 60's. The
rubber bands apparently broke, or were about to, so Dad (who
was a mechanical engineer) replaced them with springs. My
brother and I rode that bike for years with the "spring"
suspension. In fact, the spring suspension was still in place
until my brother had the bike restored by Bruce Mackenzie in
2010! I believe Bruce replaced the springs with rubber bands
as part of the restoration.

has anybody seen a rubber band fork converted to
use a spring ?
