Thats just showing off!
Had often thought about cross compatability of forks - guess you proved it works
But please tell how much swearing there was during their creation
Put it this way, I wouldnt want to do it again, waay too much time modifying to fit, build, doesnt work, rebuild, doesnt work, modify, rebuild... you get the idea
I seem to have this irritating habit of ideas coming to me when I try to drift off to sleep at night... & this fork was 1 of them
without wanting to dredge up some irritating memories, the biggest difference between the 96 judy FSX & the sid black box are:
96 fsx dummy shaft & cartridge are both held in by circlip. the sids internals are screwed (15mm socket/allen key).
the sid non drive side cartridge actually pieces the lowers (both sides of the fsx butt up against the inside of the lowers)
i'm going to stop now before I start swearing again
