Welcome to the forum, Topfmine. You have a long road ahead of you if you want to make your outfit look like a mildly convincing BMW R71. However I have tons of info and web links for converting your bike which I can share with you if you PM me your email address. I also have to strip down my forks after one leg developed a leak (I don't think these old bikes will actually run properly if they don't have an oil leak somewhere on them!!!). I have a good PDF file that illustrates how to disassemble and reassemble the forks and will send it to you once I receive your email. Out of interest, where are you based in the UK?
