Mutt, I'm hoping you can help identify this version of a front fork slider. It doesn't have any provision for a front brake and appears to have come from the Factory without a screw at the top to accomodate a spring. It's also missing it's cad plating in a few places. Any help will be appreciated. Bob

Yrp, 2 different years. There area actually 3 diiferent left side and 4 different right side sliders. Alan, that the roughest looking NOS slider I ever saw. All my NOS sliders are shiny cad plated

So that means that I have two different year sliders?

It was a "cost savings' thing. The earlier legs were threaded, but it was cheaper for the bottom line to just furnace braze in the plugs, instead of threading. Elinating 2 processes.

I have 2 fork sliders here. At the top of both there are large threads to accept the springs. On one of the sliders the threaded part has a flat spot on eather side of the base to stick a wrench so that it can be removed. The other one however does not have the flat spots for a wrench. As far as I can see the threaded part can't come off. Why would the two be different?
