I sure will. I think any brand is going to be expensive after I read a post by Alex when I did a search...

certainly nobody said they were cheap but machining fork bottom from billet is pretty complicated and takes many operations of loading and unloading plus the hours invested before the first one is sold. I refused to make these as they were just too difficult and would cost too much and simply wasn't any way around it.
Thx Ryan for the info about K-tech. Did some searching and they are a UK company. Google pulled up a website for them, it was dead. Found a lot of spring and valve kits from them at some bike shop sites.
The motocorse unit is $1250, which is about what I was expecting since it is a nicely made unit. No go on the showa radials for under $1500(w/ the caliper) it looks like. Anyone want to try and machine down the 65mm bracket on the showa to look like the mount point of the ohlins R&T and then get some CC radial adpaters and see if the caliper lines up with the rotor.
A little off topic but...I was at computrack today and....while discussing frame alignment with the very competent tech. I said hello to the youngster ( 13?) assembling a set of forks!!! I asked him if "those bottom mounts were radial".He replied he had no idea but...He continued working.The boss noted he was "a neighbor".I think he was a prodigy.
