Custom Cycle Engineering

CCE fork tubes

Legendary Californian parts specialist Custom Cycle Engineering was founded in 1967 by Randy Smith – one of the originators of the parts and accessory aftermarket we know today.

While many of Smith’s original designs are still on the market, unchanged, CCE has not stood still, having kept right up to date with materials developments and the evolution of rider expectations.

One such example is the company’s top-selling fork tube program, available through Drag Specialties. CCE black tubes are DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coated for performance and durability, with gold fork tubes featuring state-of-the-art titanium nitride coating.
The company has been manufacturing extension fork tubes for more than 30 years, and started with DOM 1026 steel tubing that is ordered specially from a tubing mill. The company then centerless grind the outside diameter to OEM specifications and machine the rest of the tube to exact ID specs.
