Lately I've been working on the forks. It will need new dust boots and seals. Surpisingly the internals looked good as there was oil in there yet. The lower fork legs must have been polished and then clear coated. After many years they looked like crap. After cleaning I wet sanded with 1000 grit and then polished them. There are some deep scratches in the aluminum but I don't plan on a show bike. This one will be ridden.
