My new upgrades *pics*

Slapped on an old school Z1 along with an LX rear the other day. Wow, what a difference the fork makes. It feels like I graduated from pampers to big boy pull ups
Took a chance on Ebay, turned out to be exactly what he said "works perfectly, like brand new".
Just changed the oil in that bad boy, put it back together, and threw it down hill. Perfect indeed.

Nah, the bike is leaning away from the camera, plus that little walkway is higher than where the wheels sit.

Nice fork. You might want a front brake though.
