    Hi,
    looking for some front forks for a 1990 bmw r100gs after New Century BMW worked on my front end and the front caliper sheared off a week later. Luckily not on the freeway.

    Welcome n00b! Glad you are okay, sounds like it was pretty ugly failure.
    What has New Century offered to do about it? At the very least they should pay for all the replacement parts and labor.

    I can't personally help you with the R100GS parts, but you should post this over in the Airheads Flea Market thread https://advrider.com/f/threads/airheads-flea-market-thread-see-first-post-for-tips-rules.1028901/ You might get a lot more useful exposure there.

    You stay safe and stay healthy!

    Sounds like maybe you need a slider. Hit me up if you figure it out. Probably have one....

    after 10 days, and as i posted, they finally located a slider/sleeve, they had said theyd take a fork if they couldnt find a sleeve, and theyre covering parts and labour, as they should, thanks for the rapid response
