Eddie Trotta re build blind

Hello. I read alot of the stuff on this site as its great, but never posted.

I'm rebuilding a 2005 Trotta bike. I can not find anything regarding the parts used.
I'm currently struggling with the rebuild of the forks. Does anyone know what make they were/are & bits like the seals and bushes? This bike was APOW as it had been left to decay in Florida so the salt air had ravaged most of the chrome so all that has to be re done hence the fork rebuild. Any help form anyone who knows about these bikes would be a great help.
Thanks

Thats gorgeous man

Have you emailed them directly?

Contact — Eddie Trotta Designs

This would be your best bet, Let them know what model you have but they all seem to run the same front ends.

Sorry I couldnt be of more help man.

Thanks for the reply Spade.
I've tried them to no avail as Eddie sold up to cypress creak. They still make some of the parts but no help with anything tec. There is no manuals or nothing like my AIHTC which I was able to get all docs to that before everything went AU.
The pic of the ET bike look ok, but it was ravaged by salt air so all chrome having to be re-done hence the fork break down & the tank was rusty as hell inside so had a new tank fabricated. Can't get wheels re- chromed here in the UK so going for powder coated first to protect then painted as need a certain colour. Ive given myself 2 years to get it all done. The covid lockdown helped.
May try an update it as it comes along on here. Thanks again and maybe another person on here could give help. Thanks

I would post some good pictures.

Also, take it down to your local independent bike shop, let them have a look.

so...this might be a dumb idea. but didnt he do a Biker Build off? He would of used his signature front end. let me look for an episode.

Bikernet has some Amazing stories on it, and Bandit it a cool dude. This is one article he has on the site. You can email them to see if they know. but its the same front end by Trotta, It might be an exclusive by him?

Hit up John at Scooters Performance, he can probably source the parts you need. Great guy, if you know of one reliable shop in your area, you can always take it by and ask what they know, sometime you will be surprised by what some shops actually like on personal style lol.

One out here that does metrics really loves WCC and has a dominator he rides, just dosnt want his passion for his HD to go into work, so he builds sports bikes lol.

Good advice to ask John -

Most fork tubes incorporate existing seals etc -
The seals should have a number etched on someplace - if not seals for
corresponding tube diameter for H-D or other should work.

So I removed the seals, cover and the bush. The bush has an "M" design on it and 504530 BP
So the seals and covers are ariete and made in Italy so sorted there and SKF do a bush of that size
https://simplybearings.co.uk/shop/p2...duct_info.html
seals: https://www.ariete.com/en/catalogues/ari
I have both these links in to assist anyone else that may need to look for the same thing.
Thank you for your help. I hope to have it built for next years riding season. I will post some pics as it comes along. Thank you to everyone who gave their help :-)
