Sometimes you get lucky!

Been in the process of tearing down my 68 suzuki forks for paint, chrome, new seals, etc... All in all i was expecting to pay 3-400 to restore the forks, but then on ebay looking for something completely different for another project i stumble across these! http://cgi.ebay.com/Suzuki-K10-Hydra...4#ht_645wt_939

Brand new forks, with perfect chrome and paint, and the best part? $58 SHIPPED, that's less than a set of seals go for for this bike! I'm so happy

noo, it's just that light oil they pack parts in to prevent them from rusting, it's not fork oil
