trying to work out if forks from a older 500 four would fit. There is a set from Belgium for £100 that are in good nick, and there is also a set from a 1980s cb500 in Good old USA but they are asking ridicolous postage costs.

I think that the chances of them fitting are very slim.

I have a set if you want to collect, I was keeping them as spares for mine, but I will probably die before I need them. Very Happy
