Deathcross? So for the record, it's OK to use perjorative language that is mostly untrue (very few riders have actually died racing Supercross) but it's not OK so sling insults and one sentence retorts. TXDirt has apparently been appointed to the Internet ... more »

To answer the OP's original question. The outer tubes of works and production forks probably both start out as extrusions. On works stuff the ID is probably precision honed and of course the OD is machined. Making a part like that from billet, although ... more »

Yeah and the rig is just a giant Ingersoll Rand industrial generator burning gallons of gasoline to recharge the batteries. Anybody else see the problem here?

Yup. That's what happened. Unfortunately a lot of valuable people now have their livelihood in jeopardy because of greed. I thought they might limp through the Holiday season before they pulled the plug but I guess even that wasn't possible. The slowdown ... more »
