Nice! Has already had a repaint at some point probably, as the "don't thread on me" decal is a bit on a weird place.

Good luck with the project!

Is indeed. At the time i wanted manitous but had difficulty buying them as out of stock and was young and impatient :D
Now i think nice to be little different, of course it also means that i have no chance of finding any elastomers!

That looks like it's going to be a joy to refurb but how wide are those bars :shock:

Cheers slim will let you know. The fork has no travel so think the elastomers have collapsed, need to stip them. Thats when i find the right size allen key (would guess 5mm) and weld up a tool.
Thinking they may be very similar to manitou?
Order? from where?
