Have two GT750s. One is stock.
The other has an 82 GS1100 front end. Used Progressive Suspension lowering kit to get correct ride height & appropriate spring rate. Its rides much better over small bumps & doesn’t bottom out like the stock one does over the big bumps.

Working on a 72 GT250 cafe build that will use the 4LS brake.
Are there any fork tubes &/or front ends that are upgrades and work with the 4LS brake + axle?
Would be fine with using 35mm fork tubes + stock triple tree, or a triple tree swap.

Alternatively, any thoughts on using the 4LS brake with GS-series forks designed for disc brakes?

Have the stock fork lower tubes ready for the powder coater. So now is the time to ask before I start spending $$$ on the stock forks.

Fit the complete forks with the original triple tree. A friend did just that on his T500.
You know the wheel and all associated bracketry fits then.
Fork leg bottoms look really good polished - just laquer them to keep the shine, or keep them bare and shiny.
