CL450BB.. Get forked...

Rusted fork tops.

Decided to take the fork gaiters and headlamp mounts off the forks today.

I made some discoveries. So good and some not very good at all.

The not good.

The forks are rusted quite badly where they have been sitting in behind the headlamp mounts. Looks like the caps that hold the gaiters on has allowed water to pool there and the rust has spread upwards. I do not believe that re-chroming will help. So will have to source a better set of fork tubes. Off to eBay to hunt these down.



The good.

A look that I really like is the fork springs on the outside. When I pulled the gaiters down that's what I found. A very cool look indeed. Even more so with out the headlamp brackets.
