    I hope iv come to the right place for some sound advice.
    Bike at local garage {Triumph Trident 900) I want to buy it but the forks
    seem a bit pitted, the question is can I repair them in some way or does any
    one know of any suppliers of forklegs for the above mentioned bike. Any
    adice would be very much appreciated by me Im a bit over my head

    If sourcing replacement fork stanchions from YOUR LOCAL TRIUMPH DEALER
    is over your head, then maybe a nice simple bicycle would suffice.

  3. Eh up, two wheels .... are you sure ?
    Methinks three would be best suited.

    There will be loads of varying ideas punted at your post from now on.

    One idea is to grab a copy of a reputable motorcycle magazine and check how
    much to have them repaired professionally.
    Barter the price down on the basis of the price to repair and haggle for a
    suitable result or go for a bike without that problem.

    Other than that wait for someone else to offer an opinion and take it from

    Best of luck anyway...

    You can get fork legs chromed and re-ground easily enough or shop
    around for second hand and hope they're straight and in good condition
    but if you think all this is a bit over your head don't even consider
    buying the bike. They're old bikes now and you'll find other niggling
    problems that need keeping on top of so unless you know your stuff
