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

Rebuilding my cb500 to as near as new mechanically as possible, need a good set of stanchions or a set of forks.

I know, I would get new but I think the Italian chrome is crap, I would get reground/rechromed but the last set I had came back too thick!

Good luck with the hunt.
Do you remember which rechromers did them too thick? Might be worth going elsewhere that knows how to grind within tolerance.
