Wanted - Front forks for '69 B44VS

I need a set of pre shuttle forks for my B44VS project. I have yokes, what I need are the legs which I believe are the same as A65L. I intend to use the 8"sls with half width hub, so fork bottoms need to be compatible.

Any advice re compatibility / interchangeability of parts gratefully received

Thanks

Thats correct, 66 onwards A65 8 single sided brake, screw in axle with damper inserts. Easily mixed up with earlier Goldie type with thinner shoes and no damper inserts as externally look the same.

Thanks Kommando - I've been doing some parts book searches and rupert ratio reading - now I am more clued up re the various types of BSA fork, as you say damper rod and heavyweight forks look the same but aren't!

Cheers
