    Fork Swap - I know this is a long shot....

    So I have my Penske shock in back and now I need to get my forks done on my 2016. I know this is a long shot but this is for anyone selling their bike with forks that have been revalved/resprung/added cartridges, etc. I am proposing a fork swap plus some cash - my stock forks for your modified ones but the forks have to be BLACK.

    I know this is probably a long shot but what the hell, lol

    Thanks!

    Here in Sydney, it only costs $100 to anodise a set of fork tubes.

    Just swap the guts. I had a set done in gorgeous black (from gold) but it was $200-250 and about 2 weeks.

    Well...that was me (Tom) who talked to you yesterday....I will be shipping you my forks next week and will let you know when they are on the way. I did get the invoice, etc.

    I am looking forward to having things set up right!

    I also want to do this.
    I talked to MX tech in Illinois and they will set you up and paint the tubes as well.
    They have done all my MX bikes and they were great.

    I live 45 mins from them and they are great...at MX bikes, hehe. I used them for my Service Honda 500AF. My forks are black already....I have decided to let Pattonme handle the revalve, etc.
