That's that sorted then, I've just purchased a Proflex 657 with sprung rear suspension and that comes with black Girvins.
Quite happy with that, it all came to £92.00

Aquired the new doner bike.
Girvin forks have a 1 inch stearing tube mines 1 1/8th of an inch.

What do I need to make this kit fit the bike.?

Thanks in advance.

After I've stripped the Bike that came from EBay.
All I wanted off it was the rear spring and arm assembly.
And the Girvin forks.
I stripped the both items down and have resprayed both
The rear spring assembly and arm is now on the bike.

The Girvins I'm wating for the Girvin stickers to come from EBay.
Then I'll get them stuck on.

All I need now is to get the forks fitted.
Problem I'm having is the Girvins are 1 inch and the old forks are 1.1/8th.
That's the only thing hindering me at the moment.

I'm quite chuffed with how this is going.
And I'll have retro parts from the Doner bike for sale once I sort this out.

Looking great, I found that the QR for the maguras doesn't have space to flip over underneath the stays so I've had to ditch the QR for a bolt which is a bit of a shame!
