Anyone out there got a dead Boxxer or Bomber Monster-T available?
Double crown, disc, with clamp on crowns top and bottom.

I only need the stanchions, upper crown and sliders. other internals and lower crown, steerer etc. not needed.

Telelever project churning in my head....

It's not mine...but a previous build from: http://www.thesphereofoz.com/concepts/bike/

The aim of the telelever is to keep the trail of the front wheel and wheelbase constant as the fork compresses.

This keeps the steering characteristics constant throughout the travel; something that is very lacking with the 65º front ends on modern bikes. With these, the fork compresses, the head tube angle increases, the wheelbase and trail decrease. This is partly overcome by matching the front travel with a similar amount of squat at the back end.

Various other bike attempts around including a Saracen one:
