I had a chance to look at some more
Yz stuff on Saturday first the frame will need some bits replacing. Not only has it rusted through it has some badly worn bits where things have been left to vibrate. So if anyone knows a decent steel pipe supplier in the UK a heads up would be much appreciated. Next I stripped the fork as suspected they have been sat with water in for sum time so the damping adjusters are rusted up, the legs are pitted and the right hand leg is bent. The straight edge in the pick is touching at both ends.

I reckon they are scrap wich is a shame as even if I put a new set on the YZ it would have been nice to have some spares for the IT.

Hi to all.
This is the offending section of tube
From the frame. After rolling it flat,the hole is at the top left the internal surface has a few pits in it and from what I can see it's a similar story for the rest of it. Does any one know what type of steel it might be?

They are chrome moly, but other than that I don?t know, I did have a welder recommend a specific filler rod but can?t remember what it was! Sorry I?m no help there .  I had my forks straightened and rechromed by philpotts, they did a great job, but a secondhand pair might be cheaper!

More than likely a 4140 seamed tubing.

Or 4130,
You can buy 4130 or 4140 filler rod.

Cheers,

While I am at it  can anyone tell me what was supposed to be here ?
It looks like a bracket is missing
Vibration has probably done for it, there is supposed to be a bracket to hold the top of the shock reservoir.
