Does anyone have any suggestions as to what kind of front fork upgrade with a disk brake option I can buy for my 1971 Bajaj 150 (similiar to Sprint)?

Maybe I don't really need the upgrade, but the front frok with a disk brake looks cool.

First decide if spending $500+ is worth looking cool.

You'll have to modify either a P or a PK fork to make it happen.

PK is the only one that will work if he wants to keep the fender looking stock. Even then the fork is next to impossible to find even ordering from europe. If he did find one I'd say more like 6-800 buck-a-roos.

Whatever there are like 7 of them with in 10 blocks of my house....

You had the bajaj of questionable origins right? It might be smart to bring it to Scooterville to have the body checked out, wouldn't want to dump a bunch of money into it only to find out you have a messed up frame.

Only if you take them off your shitty scooters.

Well, maybe thats not the way to go. This would be plan "B"

That would help, also a new rear shock and new tires if it's got those crappy hard ones that new bajajs have.

A new anti-dive bajaj fork would be cheaper than a disc, but still would require some modifications.

Thanks for the information. From what I can tell the tires appear to be either old or ? The tires are pretty hard, and the color looks to be faded in areas, its not a uniform solid black looking tire.
