Dahon Speed P8 fork replacement

Hi,

I had an accident with my Dahon Speed P8.
Lukily, I "only" got a broken rib thererby, could have been actually much worse.
The fork of my Speed P8 is a bit bent now.
I was unable to find any only store that sells a "Dahon SlipStream, Puro U7" in the US or in Europe.
Do you know where I could buy one ?

Thanks in advance.
Valery.

Have you checked with Thor at www.thorusa.com and asked him? He might either have something or have an idea for a replacement.

Speed 8 fork

Any Dahon dealer in the USA can order a replacement fork for you, and assuming Dahon USA has one, can get it to you within a week, maybe two. I've been working for a Dahon dealer for over 3 years now, and as a rule it's really easy for us to get replacement parts. Once in a great while they're out of stock on something, but that's the exception. Check the Dahon website and look for a dealer near you.
