Mountain Biking - Can someone identify these forks?
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes.

I'm putting these on ebay, think they might be very old zoom forks but not realy sure, the black 3d casting is non magnetic as is the silver casting at the top. Are they worth £10 + / $15 + US? They are really heavy something like 5kg!

not sure what they are, but they are not a big brand (Fox, RockShox, Marzocchi or Manitou) fork, which limits their value, they are 1" which limits even further, as realitically, if you want a 1 inch for, you are after very basic modern, or very high end retro.
Also not being a big brand, probably means they are not servicable, so limits interest even more.
Would say junk them, if they weigh in at over 5kg, the cost of postage (guessing you are from the UK as you included £) will be over £10, so after ebay and paypal fees you will be lucky to come out with anything, you will probably make a loss on it.

Yeah, that's a Zoom (HL).
These are found on, more or less, dept. store bikes. I, for one, don't think they're worth even $15. Believe me, I have some worthless parts lying around.

better service as boat anchor with that 5 kilo weight
Thought they were bad! Might see if the local 2nd hand shop will take them for a pound or 2! Cheers for the replies, the one about the boat anchor made me laugh!
