The fork (or forks) is the portion of a moped that holds the front wheel and allows one to steer. A fork consists of two dropouts which hold the front wheel axle, two blades or tubes which join at a fork crown, and a steerer to which the handlebars attach allowing the user to steer the moped. The steerer of the fork interfaces with the frame via a headset.

On most mopeds, the fork is where you'll find the front suspension.
