Pimp out one of your rides, I think your Zaskar would look amazing. Imagine the plush travel you could have...

if he is going to upgrade he will want an Ahead fork not threaded!

Nice retro forks, 1" steerer too :) look very similar to the Scott Unishocks from years gone by.

I wonder what bike they were originally fitted to? :o

I sold the later style forks from my activator 2 for £5 with the canti's still attached and I felt bad about it.

The forks in question are the ones fitted to an Activator 1 or other Raleighs but are missing the brake arch hence the spares or repair moniker. Thing is did they ever work or were they for all intents and purposes a rigid fork disguised as a suspension fork ???????

I had the very same on my activator all those years ago.

They didn't work. Ever.
