XJ600e: New front end

Have had a couple of matching issues with the forks. To make the old set work I would have had to make a collar and extend the thread on the stem of the bottom yoke or the triple tree. So instead of trying to force parts together I dropped into Flying Colours and did a bit of picking to make a new front end from 1991 xj600s that works, dropped a set of handle bars into the mix too for good measure. This is re-usability and upcycling at it’s best. Nice to get the hands dirty too for a while. Will send these parts to Oz and Zed parts for refurbishment ASAP.
