I'm looking for a green suss fork and think I remember seeing some Bombers in a nice green colour but maybe it was too much cider :? Anyone know of such things ?

Z1 Drop Off's circa 1999/200 were in a bright lime green if I recall correctly? Just found this old thread that confirms it.... http://www.retrobike.co.uk/forum/viewtopic.php?t=139091
