Fork conversion question
Hello all......new to the forum and have a question to throw out there. I'm looking at motorcycle #76 to be a retro-style CB1100 project along the lines of the one pictured. One modification I would be interested in doing would be a late model USD fork conversion but I am not seeing any such conversions in the various galleries. Anyone familiar with the issues of such a conversion and likely candidates for donor fork, triples, wheels etc? Thanks all!

Hmm sounds like you should wait a year and see if they bring the RS model with all the trick stuff to the states. At any rate, howdy Hello and welcome to the forum.

thanks guys........thought I had it attached......this bike shown I really like, I would consider retaining the newer tank and painting it this K1 color etc.....but would also likely do a USD conversion also.
