Very nice. 8)

I've have to say they are very rewarding to work on. A little TLC can get them looking almost as good as new. Gotta love carbon legs! :D

RC300 - I notice that you've taken off the roller brake thingy on your second pair of forks...if you don't want/need it I'd love to take it off your hands....

what did you use to 'fettle' these forks to such a shiny state? Mine could do with just that kind of treatment :(
