Hi Skidlids

Very very interested! Photos would be good thanks.

I'm in Oxford, I'll see if I can do a couple of photos within the next hour, raining outside at the moment so may have to try and take photos in the garage where lighting isn't ideal

Usually I hang on to my discs for the race bikes if I know they are straight and true but may consider selling a set depending on what type you are after

Oxford....hmmm
Brakes are fronts, the ones I have are cast iron and have not thanked me for lack of use by corroding and jamming the pins so no longer float...just pulse like crazy!!
So anything that fits standard setup and is functioning MOTable condition would do.

Oops my mistake it seems I have yet another pair of 900SS forks
Pics below, a small amount of corroded alloy as seen in the photos

My Discs are over at the unit, I may have a pair of the original 900SS pepper-pot discs but I would need to dig them out and spin them up to make sure they are running true and check the thikness against the wear limit allowed

OK...You have a sale, just what and where and when (don't find any more forks!)
Interesting differences between the first and last..mine have the darker lower bush/seal carrier part like the first..

I work in Gaydon during the week and travel back to Bath on Friday afternoon early evening. Any where we could meet up en route?

Do you go up the M42 and then down the M5 to get to bath or along the M40 then A34 and A420 to the M4 as there are a couple of places on the A420 I could meet you

I have a dentist appointment at 3 pm tomorrow, so could probably get across to the A420 by Kingston Bagpuise around 5 pm

Otherwise I should be passing by Gaydon on the M40 on Tuesday on the way up to Stafford in the morning and then on the way back in the afternoon

I drive down the Fosse way A429 from Gaydon to Bath all the way to just after Cirencester then A433.
Happy to deviate to a convenient place.
Failing that when in the afternoon would you be passing Gaydon?
I am unfortunately spending most of the day navel gazing with my work colleagues discussing how the job is going..basically what is done weekly in a 20 min discussion but now spread over a day....

Or something else..
