Kestrel 69 fork seals

Kestrel 69 fork seals

Post  johnh on Mon Aug 14, 2017 8:45 am

I'm in the process of rebuilding my kestrel 69 forks. the seals that are supposed to be at the base of the fork legs are missing, does anyone know where I could get a pair , or even just one that we can copy it?
Removing the Tufnol bushes has proven to be a bit of a challenge, there is about 6 inches of thin steel tube fitted to the inside of the top section of the fork tubes,and its approx. the same dia as the bushes, so can't simply tap the bushes out from the top with a drift. So we've had to make up a tool out of spring steel, a bit like the tool that we use to remove the ball races from bicycle head sets.
Many thanks from South Australia.
