I've a 2000 X1 with corroded fork tubes.
I'm looking at replacing them they have gone below the yolks, aluminum is flaking for some reason. .
Has anyone any for sale
I could trade my Buell jacket for a good pair.

Thanks , Zol..

A new pair from the USA come in at £600 http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/46095-99Y-460 ... T0GzjOyAUQ They've gone up a bit since I brought a pair in, Think I got them delivered to the door for less than £300. £600 is still a chunk of money but roughly the price of a decent pair of mountain forks and well short of the £1000 top end stuff to put it into perspective. And as they are new they wont need an overhaul factoring in. Hope this helps......DaveH

I assume getting them rechromed is probably cheapest

I had a pair of fork rechromed last year by AMP (Hard Chrome) ltd. 01582571234

They were great. They wouldn't let me have them back till they were perfect, even though it meant going through the process several times - very high standard of work.

Cost about £200

I did read somewhere some time ago that one could buy these but not knowing the part number or an outlet anymore I'm stuck. there were even anodized in gold too.
