Just been moving house this week and these turned up at the back of the garage, no idea how mechanically sound they are as I cant actually remember when i boxed them up and stopped using them. Assume not working but probably salvageable, the box has some loose elastomers in it and one of the top caps is non-original, paint is tatty but not terrible at the very least they make a cool ornament, the box still has the original price tag on the side of £529 :shock: and they have a little card to confirm the recall work was done to reinforce the steerer??

After £50 collected from Darlington.

Will consider posting.

How much do you think postage would be on these?

It used to be around a tenner, but royal mail will be high now. I don't know how much myhermes will charge. Pop to their website.

It would also be good to show the stanchions, undo the two lower bolt, drew them in a few turn and hit them to get the legs of and take pictures of the gold legs.

Been way too busy with moving house and the fact i work away during the week to be taking things to bits for photo's sorry.

This weekend iv already been getting my list off jobs off the wife so that is likely to be over all too quickly before back off to work.

If you want them assume the worst and it might be a nice surprise, they have always had the boots on.

Collection still prefered and you can have a good look then is about as fair as i can be.

If no one wants them then they will just get stuffed into a corner probably until i move house again(?)

as a heads up to the buyer, springs from an 80mm travel rock shox indy will replace the dead elastomers. Ps) I've got a set of these forks for sale as well linked in my signature.

Mine just sold on ebay, I started them at £35 & I guess the bidding got carried away.
