    Forks sold to hman, I am not sure of the length. They were a replacement for the original stock forks that the chrome was in bad shape.

    You da man Paul! Big thanks! Mine have shed too much chrome. I may re-do them in powdercoat black? It will be nice to have some shiny new ones!

    Glad it works out, I can recoup some of the $ and you are getting a damn good set of forks.
    Sending you some extras too! Hope you like the spiked pegs! They look cool but suck when they get wet.. if you decide not to use them pass them on to another forumn member.

    Anytime,they have easily less than 500 miles on them . I haven't rode the pit in along time. Really loving the ridgeback frame so far. This build is been fun. Harry "hman" is getting a good set of forks plus some extras I threw in. Can't wait to get this beast on the road !

    IMHO ! Sell them. No sense keeping spares around . You are getting a damn good set of forks. I paid almost 800 for them new and they have very little mileage on them.. the originals suck

    Just about every Harley bagger I see is that color, but it is a nice color just would hat to see the bike blend in after all that work

    I don't think our bikes blend in at all regardless of paint.

    Update on the build: frame should be back from powdercoat on Friday.
    New forks on order: thanks Derrick and Donna should arrive around November 7th.
    Will post pics..
    Still looking for a painter and trying to decide on graphics.

    If you look up "pure beauty " in the dictionary, that is the picture you'll find
