Bob Jackson will chrome a full set of forks for just over £100 so if the chrome is in perfect nick then the answer is..........probably, yes.

good answer to a very poor question :oops:

i suppose a better, more subjective question would be whether you would get £_____ (insert final auction figure) worth of 'value' added to your bike.

I'd buy them for £60 if in perfect condition ...............if that's what you are asking. Only because I have a set of weinmann 500's and a frame they would fit...
