    CB550 Forks are an easy swap. I hear that GT750 and GT550 forks aren't hard either.

    Good Luck!

    I saw a pair of vt250 35mm forks on e-bay for $65. a few days ago? I was looking for "cbr forks" and they came up in that listing.

    i think i saw them.
    listed as CBR250 forks?
    not sure what they are.

    maybe a CB550 set is a better idea to make them easyer to get parts and deal with....

    The advantage to getting fork off a '90's bike would be, they might actualy have valves and stuff in them and damppen much better, also might be lighter weight? You might be able to get the newer brake with it too. Might be worth a longer look.
