They really are nice forks...probably about the peak of the "damper rod" design.
Bit of overkill for anything smaller than a 350. I probably should put them on my bike (which has crappy CB550/4 forks .
PS...I'll include a set with the race bike if it sells
I'll take some pics, but it's kind of pointless...they just look like forks.
A bit much for most smaller bikes cause they are 35mm, and unnecessarily strong in most cases, more weight without a big improvement unless you are running crap forks now. Yes I run 35mm forks on my 175 race bike...but that's me, I like to do stoppies.
I think I have one set with trees, one set without, I'll have to look.
Here's a pic.
Forks on the left are from the "enclosed disk" model, with stock trees. Forks on the right are from the standard disk model, trees on the right do not go with the forks, they are ducati trees.
Yep I'll ship, yes I take paypal.
PS. Also note the difference in axle clamps, one uses two clamps, the other uses a through hole and one clamp.
PSS. Forgot to measure the length...gimme a few hours.
If you look at the forks on the left and the right and notice the lugs near the top of the fork sliders. These are used to mount the fender on the stock bike. The lugs on the left set are "different" from the norm. The ones on the right set allow you to mount a brake stay for a drum brake easily. The ones on the left set require a little more effort. The axle set up is different for the two forks as well. The right set would allow a normal Honda CB350,450,550 type axle. The left set either requires the axle from that vtr bike or someone that could fab up an axle. Or, I think, the more modern Hondas used that set up. The internals of both sets are the same.
By the way, took a close look at the forks on the left, they would take a standard honda 15mm axle if you just drill out the left side tube where's it's threaded. The big end of a honda 15mm axle fits in the clamp side, the small end fits in the other side until it hits the threads.
Yeah....you could do that instead.
Course from the looks of it, would just be easier to get a VTR axle, at 15mm it seems like it would work with most vintage honda front wheels. Actually...I think I like that single clamp better...that much less to lock wire.
