The speedo answer is to adapt the SS speedo drive to the wheel. IIRC it would take an offset engagement disc fabricated.

I have a set of Marchesini mag wheels that are designed for the SBK/later SS forks that I did the conversion measurements for several months ago. So I would either have to get SBK forks or have some machining done on the wheels. So far the answer has been made for me 'cause I'm working too many hours and trying to sort an electrical gremlin. Then I can get back on the wheel project.

To the OP, how are the forks working now for you?

The speedo issue is solved by buying an i.e speedo drive and swap the internals with your original speedo. Very easy. No spacer fabrication needed.

Had the forks on for a year and love them.
