    Here they are on the left. Original red paint can be seen where the fork plate was.

    Steve and myself are trying to make up some forks and bars for this Barris SS this is what we've came up with so far. Any advice and help on the lowers would be appreciated. This is what we have so far and these are just tacked together for now . Any help would be great!



    This is a pic of some originals that I borrowed from the gallery.

    Here is a pic I borrowed from Markus , you can look at the lower fork tubes and I noticed the slot at the top of the lowers. My thinking is the slot is for lower fork travel and also keeps the lowers captive in the uppers.....but don't know this for sure.

    Got'em Markus...and Thanks !

    As Markus explained to me and I see it now in this pic is that the lowers have the springs inside them and the slot on these lowers actually show the springs when blown up . The slot is for up and down travel and also holds the lowers captive in the uppers.

    Also I found this pic in the gallery on a Stellar suspension front fork set up and its totally different with springs on top and thinner tubes in the middle with pressed on larger tubes at the bottom.
