Any interest in these forks let me know, make offers. The tops are pitted but the lower part around the seals appears to be good.

I do have the brake calipers but they are in dire need of rebuild. I feel like I can let the rotors go too as the front end is being swapped out, I can't imagine a use for them. I can measure them later for thickness.

If they could fit on a 1979 cx500 standard, I’d gladly buy them.

However, I don’t think they can.
If someone on here knows a way to make happen, I hope they share. I love the gold forks and boomerang wheels.

Wheels are mine :) And I imagine it'd be easier to paint yours gold?

Oh yeah, I wouldn’t give up those wheels either
I could paint mine gold, but I wouldn’t have that wheel style. I don’t think I can mod the turbo wheels on the standard forks either. Well, not without some wizardry.

You won’t be able to swap Turbo forks for standard forks, they’re 37mm and 33mm diameter respectively. Perhaps if you swap triple trees too but then you’d have to sort fairings, headlight, etc. brake calliper points will be different on the forks, you'll end up with that silly TRAC system on one leg (or was it both on the turbo?), plus you’ll need the wheel, brakes, hangers, mudguard, axle etc. gonna be a whole lot more trouble than it’s worth.
