    Never heard of this before. Should I be concerned with failure/fatigue issues?

    I also thought it was a good looking fork. Seller said it was NOS.

    Seller said it was 1980 grams, which I don't think is possible. I'll have to weigh it when it...

    Flickstands are still around on many C&V bikes. I got a handful of them NOS in a purchase, and ended up selling on ebay for $20 a pop. So there is demand out there apparently.

    According to Disraeli gears, the shortcage VX is:
