Seems a shame to loose the air suspension of the Dowty’s though. I reckon it gives the smoothest ride ever on any old bike, so are worth repairing for that alone. I like the front brake too, although I also like a mag over the later coil and points set-up.

But like the man says, one less chain! That’s got to be a good thing. I’ve read somewhere that Dowty forks can be made quite reliable now with the modern seal kits available but that could just be propaganda put about by the manufacturers of said kits 🙂
