Looks like it already got nasty d giz. Almost $70 (after shipping) for USED forks. I know the good stuff goes for 3 or 4 hundred bucks new, but I'm not using my bike in competition, I don't need the best, just adequate. This is why I gave up and put solids on. I did get over to Bicycle Express and got some harder pads for it. They seem to be working fine so far.
I'm kinda wishing now that I had got a bike with a 1 1/8" headset, But so far thats the only thing I would change on my bike.
Just got an old 1940's Walker Turner drill press that works better than my newer one. ( pic is one just like it.) They used to build things to last. I'll be setting that up today if my girlfriend don't get in my way. (But that might be OK too.)
