Yea, 'Old Skool', for sure. :lol:

I sent him a pair for a 68 DT1, last week.
Followed-up yesterday and he answered.

COD -Cashiers Check or Money Order,
(no-cash), for the exact amount.

Phone Number and e-mail. He will provide
you with the exact amount when they ship.

I had him transfer the lower fork pistons, over
to the new tubes. Those were used on the
68-70 models.

YamabobinTexas, I just purchased new fork tubes from Franks for my 1968 DT1-250. In one of your post you stated that you had a better way of attaching the old bushings can you let me know your method. I have not drilled the old bushing yet but one is broken, what did you replace the one you broke with? I will have to make a new one, do you think bronze bearing will work or just make one out of mild steel? Any help is appreciated.
Be Happy!

Instructions from Frank's Forks with 3/16th Drill bit and pins they sent with inner fork tubes. I have turned two new lower fork bushings from some sintered bronze bushings. My next step to use Permatex threadlocker Red High Strength #721 and slide bushings on forks and let set for 24 hours. Then I will drill both bushing and fork and followed by using the pin and Permatex threadlocker to hold the pin. You will notice that the pins are ground to conform to the drill hole so a flat bottomed hole is not required. Anybody out there do this in the past and can provide tips would be great.
Be Happy!
