The wishbone on the one in the first post is not a regular hairpin. Looks like it is a split V- wishbone?

Ours has a 4" drop "A" axle with shortened and pinched 40 Ford Split Bones mounted to basically the frame head with supports and stiffening plates. 1/4 elliptic (51 Chev Rear Leaves) with flipped bug steering box. 40 Ford spindles with Lincoln brakes and Panhard. I only recommend the Posies half leaf Spring Mounts as opposed to the Chrome, Stainless, or Steel, Speedway Links. Posies are 3/4 NFT and Speedway is 1/2-20. My pics never show up but heres another try.

Thinking out loud, if you converted to hanging pedals, could the hair pins attach to the front
of the "Napoleon Hat" ?

Even though this is a tube frame,
it gave me the idea.
