Fork Seals

Post by portugeezer »



So as most of you know my bike was in a fire. My fork seals leaked after this and the tubes had a film on them that made then no longer smooth. I replaced the forks with a pair from a 1977. My bike is a 1976. I'm finding conflicting info on fork seals for the new forks. Some sites say 1975-1979 are the same others say 1977-1978 are alone. What is correct?

Go to the OEM parts section on Cyclemax's web site, and have a look at the part numbers for each year. If it's the same part number, then you know it's the same part.
