Hoping someone can help... Front forks

I have a 2004 AIH TX Chopper that was a no expense spared build bike back in the mid-2000's, my best friend's dad had all the work done to it, I've owned it for about 6 years. The problem I'm having is that the front forks are in bad need of being re-chromed... Not a big deal except it is a Spyke front end and Spyke is no longer around, at least in that capacity. I can't find anyone that can tell me for sure whether or not the front end can be rebuilt. The people I've talked to aren't sure they can get the seals and other pats needed.

Has anyone successfully rebuilt a Spyke inverted front end from the mid-2000's??? Thanks in advance.

I doubt that AIH used a custom fork seal.
Don't take it to the shop that told you that.
There is a place down here in Round Rock that will rebuild them.
Rechrome should be a standard process.

As I said multiple times, the bike has an inverted Spyke front end on it, I even included pics.

Iíll add this in case anyone comes across this searching one day.

I ended up finding a guy who worked for Spyke when these forks were built. They use seals from a Honda CBR900. Honda Part# 51490-MW0-003. This will save your ass if youíre trying to rebuild a Spyke front end.
