Just to let you know:-
Any C90 forks from approx 1984 right up to 2002 will go into your 1990 C90 - G.
That gives you a few more options.

What colour is your bike..... Ruby red or shuttle blue?
I imagine you've got grease nipples on your links?
You can just swap the bits over if forks from a later cub, or change to the later 'O' ring set up. The links changed about 1993.

Hope this helps you,
Andy.

Hey, thanks. It’s shuttle blue, I’ve bought c100 in error so they’re useless, I’ve found 6v which aren’t ideal. Interestingly as you say mine should have grease nipples but they don’t. I’m guessing they can’t be original to the bike ?

I'm pretty sure they were on the C90E only. :D

Terry Moore bought a new set last year for his blue C90, can't remember where from.

The nipples were present on '86,'87 & '88 models. Then through the years, subtle little changes / mods were done. It's sometimes difficult to pinpoint the exact year of changes.
Anyway go with what you have. Both later links take 10mm front spindles (axle bolt). Then into 6300 wheel bearings. So your brake plate and wheel set up will fit.
Cheers Andy.

There’s new ones on eBay from outside the uk. I’m just worried about quality. I’d like to stick with oe quality or as close to as possible.
