Seeking post war forks for my Plus 80.
« on: 20 Sep 2006 at 08:56 »
Either Plus forks or MK V I can slightly modify.

I dont need a complete assembly of springs and dampers etc,  just the fork tubes and steering pivot on the triple bracket.  The main requirment though is that these be basically straight.

Thanks

Hi John will have to check over the weekend I may have a spare set of t35 forks thet are  not bent if you are going to move the brake pivots you could use the one of your bent forks Regards Daren

Thanks Daren,

Yes I would be interested in anything that might get this bike on the road and running in a straight line.

Moving the brake pivots is unavoidable unless I can either fix what I have or find 'Plus' forks.

The T35 through Mark 3 only have the anchor on the left (for the brake), there is no duplicate on the right for the mudguard support/linkage. If you plan to move the anchors to the Plus position, then it does save you the trouble of repositioning/moving one from the Mark forks, but you will need to salvage one from the Plus forks.

Thanks Daren, they look like they have potential,  can I just hold off on this for a while until my options of rescuing what I have are exhausted?

Thanks
