Nice, are the forks original? I seem to remember mosst were recalled for safety reasons.

Always liked the yellow double U brake one on here a from a few years back, where is it now eh?

Thanks. Original to the bike? no, the previous owner said when he bought the bike off the owner before him back in '91 it had RC30's.

I really like the design of the unishock but as you said, most the original ones were recalled, not sure about the later versions though.

I would be tempted to find an RC30 fork then and get it colour matched, sort of back to its original state - but thats just me.

I cant recall whether all were recalled or just certain batches, all I will say is that in all my years I have never seen or heard of a unishock fail.

'twas mine.. It ended up in good hands, trust me ;)

I do wish I had kept it looking back as I had grand plans for it, but other projects got in the way at the time.

In the meantime I've been working on all my remaining Brit steel collection today - off out on the Diabolo later! Plenty of Dave and Harry content on show :)
