Mine is strictly for road use. Most of my retro bikes are for road/light off road use.

perhaps appropriate replacement stanchions could be found and swapped in, since that's the underlying trouble area?

some purple has been arriving :wink:

not sure on the 987's, just don't think they are the right pedigree for the frame, and i would also have too think about the matching levers.

maybe will go with full M900 with just the splashes off ano :?
