Atlas fork stop? Need help

Postby Johnnymac » Thu Mar 30, 2017 3:30 pm

Hi guys. Does anyone recognize the fork stop in the picture? It's bolted to the front of the frame. It would probably be fairly easy to fabricate, but if I can source it, even better. This is Jeandr's picture and I asked him but he doesn't know where to find them.

What year is this Atlas you are working on ?

There is some chat on the NOC Forum that the later AMC featherbeds had the fork steering stop welded onto the frame, and thus this bolt-on plate was dispensed with.

The right name/words would probably find it in the parts lists ?

That appears to be same as fork stop on my Atlas which is bolted on.

If you want to fab one up, I can trace the outline of mine and snail mail or fax it to you.

A couple years ago I made an AutoCad drawing of this plate. complete with dimensions. I sent it out to a couple of people on the old Brit-Iron list and the INOA list. Of course last year my hard drive took a dump and I lost the drawings. If anyone has a copy, I would appreciate having a copy sent to me - and posted on this list.
