Hello Lefty I have a partial set of forks ,a upper t clamp no lower one, good set of lower forks one good fork tube with all the internals, the other one is bent and the damper will not come out but I have not tried to straighten it out with my press and take it out, I am pretty sure it will come out and be good as the tube is bent but not big time, just enough for the damper rod not to slip out, Might even be abill to straighten and fix, Have to look but I am pretty sure all the fork caps and small parts , clips , ect are there except the top handlebar clamps they are missing the two top pieces of the clamps  that bolt  the top part to hold the handlebar to the bottom clamp

Well it  just so happens that I need the lower legs more than I need the entire forks up. When I bought this bike the left leg had a broken drain bolt and mount it was completely broken off and there was no oil in it. I JB Welded over the hole & installed new fork seals, but it didnt seal very long. A 2nd set lasted about the same amount of time. So what are you asking for these and can you put pics up, please. Thanks, Brian
