I reckon some modern (V brake) Fox forks would look good on that, especialy in silver like your old Hei Hei

Thanks :)

Didn't you buy my old set of Fox's off me Neil?

Anyway, they are heavy, the SID's are light ;) I've got a choice of these SID Race in silver or between a black or white set of SID WC - any thoughts?

I want to do a custom SID anyway to get them a bit lighter :shock:

Cheers
