Pair of 2004 Duke SL U-turn forks with 195 mm steerer (star nut fitted). Disc or V but no bosses.
2 problems - wear to the left stanchion (not the air side) & the travel adjuster is stuck @ the max setting of 108 mm.
These have the Pure Delite damper cartridge so the only oil getting past the worn stanchion is from the small amount on top of the damper for seal lubing.
Paint & decals not bad, all knobs etc present.
Wish I was clever enough to fix them, they were very good forks.
Sell for £25 + £8.80 postage if required or collect from Exeter area.

They look exactly as mine did. The only difference is the colour. :shock:
