Hello
I’m building a website about old suspension forks.
This is not a commercial site.
I’m trying to catalog the forks.

http://retroforksbike.pl/

The website is under construction. At the moment there is only Polish language. I'll try to make an English version soon.

I was looking for information about old suspension forks on the internet.
There are many interesting websites. But I didn't find the catalog anywhere.
Well..., I decided to build a website.
Now I'm collecting information:)


Can You help me?
I need information and photos of your forks.

Thank you for any suggestions and information!

Today I was looking for information about Piaoli forks.
Piaoli forks were mounted on bicycles Heavy tools.
I've found:

Piaoli Alu M03
http://retroforksbike.pl/amortsatory/pi ... ools-axle/

Piaoli from 1995, with HPS disc brakes.
http://retroforksbike.pl/amortyzatory/piaoli-1995/

I know there was a Piaoli Corsa 30 and possibly a Piaoli Corsa 50.
30 and 50 its travel?

The years of production are probably 1992 and 1993


Do you have any information about Italian Piaoli forks?

This is very important information!

1993 Piaoli Alu M03 and 1994 have a different brake arch.

Of course, I wrote to the Piaoli Company a few days ago. No answer.

I think I have all the models
Answera, Cannondale, Rock Shox, Scott, Specialized and Sunn.

I know all the Sun Tours but I don't have pictures.

I probably have all AMP models. I don't have all the pictures.

Marcus from https:// dr-marzocchi.projectweb.de - the best site about marzocchi - will check the forks.

Girvin, Pace, Rond, RST, Showa, Tange and the rest of the players need my work

English would be a good solution to make it more international, the Google translator is not good with bike specific details.

Thanks for private posting, I will support the Marzocchi part if I find some spare time. Also pictures are not that problem.

A timeline or a more closer comparisment about all the older forks was always on my to do list ;-) Nice to see you are doing this reasearch! That's very welcome!
