Hi all, I need a single fork tube for a 1982 Honda CB 750K. Previous owner said he changed them but they were both leaking when I bought the bike. There are some pits in the front hard chrome surface that are highly suspect as to cause but I don't KNOW why they are leaking. Since I didn't do the job it could be the wrong size seals, again unknown. I will not take it apart and render the bike useless until I have the necessary replacement parts in my hands. Brake pads are contaminated with brake fluid of course so it is not safe to ride. I located and purchased a single fork tube NOS from Europe. If I have to I would buy a new PAIR/SET of forks. Any help in finding a single tube or a pair would be much appreciated/rewarded. I would rather new than used as I already have used ones.
Thank you MVR

If buying from ebay/dismantler make sure the fork tubes arent more pitted than whats on the bike.

Some elbow gease in polishing and araldite/superglue to fill in the pits sometimes works. Its the sharp edges on the pits that cause the issue...

Tarozzi makes many tubes for these older bikes...google that and you might find a local supplier..theyll b crossreferenced to the Oem part number.
Fastfromthepast.com has this brand, based in Atlanta.....
