A familiar tube of autosol sitting there.
Excellent forks,i had a set of them arrive with my '99 clockwork.they ended up on my run-about-bike.

Is that twin mounts on the marzocchi :?

is there any real benefit of running brakes on the back side of forks? it seems to be mainly a uk thing, pace etc. first time i have seen rigid forks doing it mind.. yeah i had a pair of Z1 BITD, i also could never quite work out why the big M cast disc mounts on both legs..

The mounts go on backwards so that when you break the forces of stopping don't push the pads out as they grip the wheel but in, To reduce flex as you break..
