"Perfect" superbike front end?
Which bike(s) could I use to build the "perfect" front end for vintage superbike racing? I've got the frame I want to use, but I'm looking for the parts to meet the rules, from as few different bikes as possible (minimizing the machining & extra brackets).
I'm looking for:
-41mm forks, not USD, not cartridge type, with compression & rebound damping adjustments
-2 piston brake calipers (one piston per side, total of 2 per caliper). Solid not sliding mounting.
-17" x 3.5" front wheel, not hollow spoke. I think the CBR600F2 wheels would be legal, but not any wheel with a round or hollow spoke cross-section. Ideally, the same bike would also have a 17"x4.5" rear wheel, but it isn't absolutely necessary
So, is there one bike out there with all of this? If not, which (2?) bikes could be combined to build up this front end?
Looking forward to the suggestions!
