Its been on my mind since I picked this old pig up. Front forks were working like shit and needed the fluid at very least changed out. Well after removing the plugs I can assure you the forks hadn't had the fork oil changed since at least the 70's maybe even earlier. It was a black sludge mostly with a little trickle of fluid. Its common sense with any old bike purchase an engine oil/trans fluid change is a must and a long with that a fork oil change is pry a damn good idea too. Well now my forks are tip top. Used a real nice trick to get the new oil back in too. Use a brake bleeding kit and pump the oil back up through the drain hole. Works slicker than shit..
