    Hi,

    For my pleasure and because i'm a passionnate that love the perfects parts, I'm restoring my FG9050.

    Inside and outside. Full service, seals and oil, anodising of the outside parts, machining of new caps in aluminium. With respect of the original colors and surfaces finish, and the respect of the fork operation.

    The fork partially dissasembled and in restoration.



    Legs marked by the time.



    The nuts after anodising.



    Outer tubes, nuts, holders and caps from return of the anodising.



    Legs after surface preparation and anodising



    New machined caps after anodising



    Outer tubes with surface preparation before anodising



    Legs prepared to go to anodising




    I hope you found it interesting

    Regards

    I had trouble finding a company who got the right colour.
    Cheers!

    Very nice!

    But I have to admit I am kind of conflicted in my feelings: as much as it's nice to look at something perfect there is also something quite attractive about the patina of an "experienced" bike. Of course once you have one area of the bike looking perfect everything else looks crap and therein starts the ride down the slippery slope, haha.

    In comparison with a stock FG9031, you can see that the end of the outer tubes have the same color.
    Of course, the 9050's tube are more shining as the "old" 9031 that have more time in the socks (rain, wind and solar attacks).

    When you put an old fork in a "new" bike, it can't be good.
    I love the old original bikes in a perfect state.
    Scratches are welcome but underneath the paint

    The special clamp bushings (7075).



    An idea of that it will be after finish



    Base valve and the shock absorber





    The free piston and the inner tube





    The bottom leg plug



    The lower part
