I have managed to source a supply of seals that fit early Manitou forks, the dust covers that fit at the top of the lower legs. They definately fit 1's and 2's, I have not looked at Manitou 3 onwards but I am sure they are the same as the early ones and so will fit them too. SLIM or someone confirm?
If anyone is interested then start a list as there is a minimum order quantity of 10 as they come from the states.
£8 a pair including postage, as soon as I have a definate 5 pairs then I will order them plus some spares for later.

the picture below is of the mani 1/2 seal fitting

notice the lip which the seal fits "under" at the top of the leg , on the mani 3/4 , there is no lip for the seal it has a narrower lip for a snap ring

so dont think they will fit 3/4
