2004-2005 ZX12R Gold Radial Forks for Sale -- Possibly?

Full disclosure, I have a set of the much coveted radial forks. As I posted earlier, in another post, they were rejected by Traxxion Dynamics for upgraded rebuild due to 0.030" runout and a small dent down by the dust seal on one leg. Their claim is that their goal is minimal stiction, and they couldn't guarantee their level of quality with these forks. They said the chrome tubes are also "bent and creased", although they didn't quantify that with pictures or measurements.

As some of you know, chrome tubes are sold separately. There are lots of uppers available, either your own or on ebay, usually in silver. These forks may be able to be rebuilt by the right person.

So...I am inquiring about getting them back from Traxxion and selling them. I believe that because of the desirability of the radial caliper mounts, these have residual value. It may even be that 0.030" is tolerable for reinstallation, if perhaps with a bit more stiction. The triple tree may mitigate some of that bend.

So...opinions? Anyone interested in a fork project?
