I haven't bought any fork spikes yet, I will do in the future, the spiked things I've got at the moment are the grips and four nuts that hold the sissy bar on, I've just ordered some spiked chrome risers like these

Where are those fork spikes from in the picture above ?

These are what other people are using as fork spikes but they don't ship to the UK http://www.iowa80.com/DirectionsWEB/webcart_productDisplay.php?itemid=159295&itemdesc=1.5%22+Chrome+Spike+Push+On+Lug+Nut+Cover
I've ordered some similar off Ebay but I've no idea if they'll fit :what1: I'll let you know when they arrive.
