I think the original owner of Frank's passed away some time ago, but they are definitely still in business. They don't seem to answer the phone regularly, but my main problem is that "the guy who knows" is a machinist who has been there "forever," but apparently only comes in after hours. Supposedly he will answer the phone in the evening, but I have had no luck. As a company, Frank's has surely had a lot of experience with Ceriani, if only because they've been at it since 1969 and are the only concern in the US still making custom fork tubes. My questions have to do with whether or not they bore the tube I.D. and other internal dimensions to the stock specs so the damping piston, valves, etc. do their job properly. I am also a bit concerned because the stock Ceriani fork tubes are made of chrome moly (?) and are quite thin-walled (2.5mm) and light-weight. I can't quite imagine that the Frank's tubes will be as good a steel, and so won't be as rigid. I sold Frank's tubes at various shops from the very early '70s to the very late '80s. As I recall, they were all just show chromed then, but they are all properly hard chromed now. However, in the past they had told me that they did not always machine their tubes to exact factory specs. Race Tech sells TNK tubes made in Italy. They list what would be stock length (526mm) Ceriani road race tubes for 1967-1974 Aermacchis, Benellis, and MV Agustas, but I am not certain they actually stock them, nor even know what they are, especially after their "vintage specialist" sent me an email stating "...I have looked (at) this before & the TNK tubes are from OEM fitment not the classic aftermarket forms you have. I wish TNK had them!" I'll try Frank's again this evening.
