Thank you for the reply, I thought that it might be the case that I would need to strip them down. I think I got most of the congealed gunk / porridge out but as say the only thing to do is have a look.
The chap I bought it from did the Somme tour last year and 600 miles on it in a week.
Is it a 'hook' tool I require for seal holders or something more complicated?

Twins / STIFF FORK TRAVEL 1970 THUNDERBOLT
« on: 02 July, 2017, 13:49:53 »
I have recently purchased a A65 as above. The front fork travel seems to be very hard and' locks out' every now and then.

I drained the old oil / water! out and replaced with 20w fork oil which seemed extremely hard. I have since drained this and have now filled to 200mill with 5w oil ( any less and it would clunk at maximum for extension when going over bumps) which seems softer but as occasionally seems to lock out when the forks are fully extended. I was hoping not to have to strip them down until winter comes. Any advice/suggestions would be welcome.
