    Slightly unrelated fork guard question?

    Hi all,
    I need your help on a small issue i have encountered on a fork restoration i have finished.

    I recently acquired and renovated a (slightly rare) Marzocchi RAC inverted fork.
    See below.


    The obvious issue is the lack of lower leg protectors.

    Do you guys think that your lower leg protectors may fit if modified etc?
    You guys are my last port of call,
    Cheers Mike

    The Maverick parts are held by 2 small screws into the dropout knuckle. They are cheap @ $25/pair. I may have a few that are cracked that you could get.

    Cheers Mike

    Is the OP'er prepared to drill 2 small holes on each leg's 'knuckle'? If "No", see about some Lizard Skin neoprene covers

    Trial and error with automotive double sided trim tape, Velcro, etc.

    Liz Skins are the fastest way to damage the seals & stanchions.

    What is the issue with Lizard Skins? Are they also problematic for protecting the Joplin seatposts?

    These wraps hold fine particulate dirt against the stanchions and seals. Over time that stuff will do damage.
    Yes.
