    Well, I placed an order with Unit this AM for a leading link fork for my 89 R 100 GS.
    They say it will be in my hands in 3 weeks.
    Not bad from the UK to New Mexico in 3 weeks.
    Now I wait for the big brown truck.......

    Good move. I think you will like it when you get used to it. Please keep us posted.

    Thinking of doing the same thing. If you could, how much $, and how did you get them payment? Did you have them do any mods on the LL, such as change or mods of brake calipers? Can I assume (I hate that word) that its a bolt up, or are there any other changes to be made?

    Well the cost with shipping was $2200.00 USd
    Of course I will have to do the install myself. The bike wil retain the stock wheel and disk brake assembly.
    There will be another mount for a second disk if I want to add another one.
