Hmmm, it's a relatively easy job to do IF you can unbolt and seperate the fork from the strut but that video suggest that you can just cut the nut off and they'll come apart.

Which is ********. Unless someone's had it apart recently and ursed copper grease on reassembly that bolt is a right PITA to remove, as is the strut itself.

Otherwise, yeah, that's agood find.

Not bad. Loving the coveralls.

The fork is the older alloy one with the through bolt. Much easier to get at with WD or plusgas. Later models have steel forks and the fork has threads within.

My advice, check that the bolt comes loose first, before starting anything else!

And a decent set of spring compressors, the fonts need quite a load to compress!.

Have fun.
