    Current bid on Ebay, $20,501 with 2 days to go.
    WTF. Cant drive it anywhere.
    Memorabilia value? Angry Anderson and Robert deCostella rode a lap of the G in it before the 91 GF... so?
    About as useful in historical value as Meat loafs' woeful performance in 2011.... I think he'd had a stroke just before taking the stage.

    I put a video up of his 'performance' on YouTube that night and by the next morning it'd been taken down due to copyright (but we all know why it was really taken down).

    USD's I don't think. Prolly just covers over conventional forks with external springs. I have couple of early Suzuki's that are similar. Covers hide ugly gubbins.
    Having said that I'm unsure if they are standard to a Bantam, no expert there mind. Just don't think they look right.

    Cheers

    Thanks @numbat, I've got 2 Commando projects on the go now, one being my old banger that was wrecked in the accident-from-hell. Frame is beyond it, but much of the rest is salvageable. The other just needs some (!) reassembly.
