An old school lifestyle and craftsmanship through motorcycles.

We're running xs1100 forks on the front of the bike for additional stiffness, but before reassembling the forks and putting them back on the bike, some changes were made. Compression blowoff valves were machined and installed to allow for tuning both the low speed and high speed compression damping rates, rebound rate will be controlled mostly by the choice of fork oil. The stock fork caps were also tossed and replaced with new caps which allow full variation in preload. New fork clamps will also be machined with an offset designed specifically for the bike.
