1976 T140v slow rebuild

Hi all,

I'm finally getting on with rebuilding the T140v I've had for years, a house restoration & so forth seemed to get in the way for a while.

I'm only at the stage of sending bits off for work I can't do & to that end I need to know the correct OD of the fork stanchions. I've a suspicion they were rechromed undersize before as when I got the bike & they didn't show any wear the fork seals never sealed properly, so I'd like to let the chromer know the correct size to do them.

I've got this info somewhere in the manuals, but I've yet to locate them so this would let me get things started while I search them out.


PS, pic from when it was in one bit & working a few years ago, just for attention.
