    About a year ago, I purchased a set of machined fork caps from ebay. Seller said he's not making them again.
    Bummer
    Last week I gave mine to a machinist to see how much to copy....
    Out of 4 machinist buddys, Noone has the jig to do the straight knurl and they say it's about $250 for the jig.
    His options are criss cross knurled or we could get them smooth.
    I can get them for about $20 a set either way.
    I'll try to attach pictures of the set I have, but the knurl will not be straight.

    Caps on the left are stock ones on the right are machined and I polished them.
    Any interest in these guys?? Post up. I'd need to get 10 sets to cover the cost of the CNC set-up 20180710_133156.jpg 20180710_133156.jpg

    Made from ally I'm assuming.

    Might be interested in a few sets...for myself and to sell over here in the UK.
