I'm the fuckin' new guy around here. I really don't know much about bikes, was never raised around, never had anybody show me the ropes until recently. Even now I am still learning a lot of stuff the hard way. So here it goes. can anybody help me identify this front end. Looks like some sort of narrow rigid front end that fits on a harley, but then again I see the steering damper behind the handle bars so it can't be an H-D front end. Or are they just some shaved inverted forks? Help would be much appreciated.

can't really help you id the forks as this photo isn't that great of quality.
but what i can tell you is those forks aren't shaved, they just have fork covers on them.

sorry, that i am no help whatsoever on this one.

They are Triumph pre-unit forks with MCM fork covers. One of the best looking frontends

fuck then I can only imagine something like that front end is going to be like finding a needle in a hay stack.

It is indeed a great picture. I stole it from the 4q blog. Max always has some of the best shots around.
