Don't suppose that they've been underwater? Even sitting outside at the breaker's I can't imagine forks getting that much water inside.

A couple of pages to look at, if you need:
yeah, disappointing. I'll see how well they clean up:/ the forks that came on my bike actually look really good (clean) except for the fact that the previous owner must not have had a circlip plier thingy and the screw in spacers seem to be a bit stripped... (no pic of that yet). The good thing though, is like you say, i've now learned why we're supposed to change the oil regularly;) This project teaches me so much;)
