You sure you wouldn't rather have cb350 forks? I'd let them go for a good price. Though you would have to say Harley's are the coolest bikes you've ever seen. :)

Not really but if cb350 forks work for you let me know.

Ha Ha.. I see you've been following the USCRA "Hog Racing" thread.. The problem with the 350 front end is I would need everything including bearings, races, triple, etc.. if you have all of that and will take $20 then lets do it!!

Cheers, A.D.

I've got the triples for the cb350. And I might have the bearing races, but I'm positive the little ball bearings went rolling across the shop floor never to be seen again. I think you'd want to convert to tapered bearings anyway. And even though all of this will go for $20 cash American these are just what you need to kick Tex's ass. Let me know if you're interested.

AD-

between alex and i, we can give you a complete 350 front end (you'd want new bearings/races though) if you wanted tubes with external springs, then we wouldn't need alex.....except for......

AD,
I do have a pair....they suck, chrome is gone on one of them down by the seal. And dust puffs out of the other when you push it down :)
So I threw them out.

These weren't any good...rough spot on the tube would have eaten seals in minutes.
Lots of these parts come off junk bikes...who knows where they've been.
I do have a set still on a CL175 sloper rolling chassis that I think are good. Kinda wanted to leave them on that bike though.

I thought they were better till I got them out of the corner of the garage at night and brought them into the light this morning. Not pretty, but you can have them if you can use them...

FOR FREE!!! (Just pay for actual shipping cost)

Let me know,
Steve

Here are the swampers

OK Tex, if it makes you feel better I'll charge A.D. $500 for the forks that way you'll lose to him on expensive forks.

So in an effort the thread jack - I'm assuming you are now a college graduate - got a teaching job lined up yet? You're not moving to Alaska are you?

everyone else,

anyone wanna chime in here? place your bets now! i'm riding the stocker for this one (mainly cause i don't have the cash to finish the new bike). probably should take a carb off to make it a fair fight.

Hey, gang thanks for offering up all of your rusty bent forks. I will now have the worlds largest collection of useless fork parts;) Now if I could only get all of your broken brake levers....
Seriously tho, thanks for all the offers, I belive the fork crisis is over for now..

Cheers, A.D.
