The next step up would be to the 3/4" front sway bar. It will be a bit harsher ride than the 3/8" but honestly, many people don't notice the difference in ride. What will be different is that the car will corner flatter when pushed than with the 3/8" bar and that will be noticeable. I've often thought that a 5/8" front bar would be ideal for a Speedster as the compromise between ride harshness and flat cornering, but I don't know if anyone offers one.
Correct, Gordon. In the 70s and I'm guessing the early 80s you could get a 5/8" front bar. For me, the stock bar wasn't quite enough. I bought a 3/4", but it hit my frame longitudinal members. It will be even worse for a Beck, as they use a 3" main tube rather than the Vintage 2".
The 3/4" hit, the car cornered FLAT, but it understeered(Spyder, swing axle, no camber compensator).
So I made my own 5/8"(actually 16mm) from an old 911 front bar.
It has been said(not by me, but can't remember who) that a 5/8" front bar is the best compromise for "hot" street use.
Dave, all you need to do is buy some clamps, and to remove your frame tubes in front of the beam....
