I made my first big mistake on my rebuild and after a simple fork seal removal decided to put the copper ring(that is pressure fitted to hold the tube and case together) in first. It's now 100% stuck, and I walked away for 3 weeks.
And now I'm back and ready to tackle this guy.
Turns out tube was bent in the first place so how many/which models of forks would fit the mm diameter of these guys - does anyone know the diameter off hand? That info doesn't seem to be in the manual. I'm looking at forks on ebay and might just get a whole new set - do all of the 81CB750 F/C/K have the same forks? Partzilla says it only works for the 81/82 750F
I have a 1981 CB 750F Supersport. Thanks everyone.
They are all 35mm. You can change the sliders from fork tube to fork tube.

I like vintage bikes because they take me away from the clutter of technology that I work with everyday and back to a simpler time of mechanical elegance and simplicity.. "ninadm"
