Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Going to graft a pair into a BSA Gold Star, fedup with crap suspension.
Tried converting Suzuki GS 550 stanchions but was not happy with the outcome.
My missis has a CB 500, took the forks apart and they are a good match ie- similar length,weight of bike etc.
Will be making my own fork bottoms, just need a pair of good stanchions, springs and damping internals.
Missis wants her bike back ha ha...
