GCR states
Post Classic (Twin Shock):
For models designed and first
manufactured between 1st January 1965 to 31st December 1986

The way I interpret this means you have options such as the 35mm forks from a TS250ERN which look quite similar in appearance.  "tis what I have fitted to mine ;)

having done a few Trials events this year,
Trials is very uncomplicated by comparison to VMX and the only real anal folk seem to be some of the old school brigade and even then its still very simple.
so i'd reckon if the bike/forks are not 100% perfect to the year but still fit into the broad guideline of "post classic" or "twinshock" (same thing) then like Doc has done, it'd be fine.

A man of your abilities should be able to make a great bike from that  ;)
Looking for YZ250C parts NOS if possible

I was pretty sure that the early RM forks were 36mm and not 35mm which is what the Honda forks were?

I actually picked up some ts250 forks that'll do the job. Have collected most of the bits I need, just need a couple of spare hours in the shed to get stuck into it. Finished by christmas is the plan.

Great effort Paul. Only 15 months to get the forks together. Keep up the good work :o

Looking really good... wheels look "fast".  However, not sure which Christmas you are referring to, as that was June 2013 :-).  Looking forward to seeing the progress.
