Nothing to be envy for, actually I'am also a little bit impressed that it
turned out so well, I think I've got a fork flash and this mod turned into a pimp my Bultaco ride.

The mounts are from older GasGas, you can also take Sherco's from befor
2000. You have to get them first, just to know how much you have to turn
down the lower fork tubes.

I was inspired by the PUMA or Vasquez Bultacos, but these bikes where mostly rebuild with Paoli or other I do not know where they come from forks, (which are and will be far better too). I wanted to use the old standard Betor, these are cheap and easy to get.

I took a pair for a low price, now I would not try to get the cheapest, better to get one which is in a very good technical condition.

Without the corrections and chromeplating of the stanchions it is a really
priceworthy modification and a good fork from a newer bike of the end 80' or 90's is as twice as expensive.
