Fork brace for a Special

Hey been in touch with a fellow who wants to join the forum once things get squared away with the new hosting. Has a really nice Special that needs a fork brace. Anybody have something they would be interested in selling?

Thanks Mike, Tkat went out of the business of fork braces a number of years ago. Don't see anything for sale other than for a Standard on the internet.

This one fits the Special, it is listed as sport (overseas model) which has Special forks.

Tkat

Quick info on TKAT, I did get ahold of him, as he has moved to Florida and does plan on getting his shop together, and hopefully a source again for the fork braces, so anyone that wants to drop him a line and say hi, sounded like he really appreciated the xs11 rally group fun we had with him at the Calif. rallies. Ride on,,,,Mike in Sun Diego

This guy said he tried to contact TKAT in the last two weeks but didn't hear anything back, so hopefully when he gets his shop put together he'll be able to sell a few more.
