They're just unrestored fork legs that have pitted and rusted a bit. Everything from below the original lower clamp location is clean because the bike originally had fork gaiters on it.

It looks a bit out of place, but it does kind of tie in with the unfinished steel cover in the triangle area.

Boldor, as beautiful as that bike is, the story behind it is quite compelling:

That may very well be the best looking "bike" in this entire thread.

I see you and raise you a Tridays Eleven (I really wonder why I cant find any mention of it on svrider.com, especially in this thread).

94 hp, FCR housings containing the fuel injection, top of the line suspension bits, incredibly skillful paint job - money was no object on this project.



Ive seen it in person last weekend. The "scratched" tank and the old looking bits are intentional and clearcoated. It looks real even from 20 cm - you have to touch it to know.

More photos from the photographer who documented the project:

Ciao
