fork inner tube

Does someone know the difference between the fork inner tube for a G80 and the inner tube for a CS model? Lenght? Thickness?
Looks like I need to renew mine or let them chrome again.... :cry:

friendly greetings,

Hi Vincent, in 1954, tube fork inter part no 016322 was listed for all single except 16MCS and 18CS, which used part no 016377. I don't know what the difference was but I believe that later, when the 1 1/4 in forks came out, the CS models stayed with the lighter 1 1/8 tubes which were made from a stronger steel alloy. Perhaps the pre-55 models used a stronger steel for the CS models? I am not aware of any dimensional differences. Andy
