It looks stunning!
Just a question, why or for what do you need it to be revalved?

Whoever owned the forks must have had them setup for a track bike, as it is way too firm for general road riding and my 75 kg of weight. I will get lighter springs fitted and if need be revalved to suit while it is in the shop.

That’s probably what’s happened.
I have same forks using them just as they are and they works just perfect on my bike with my 76kg on.
The only thing I have been struggling a bit is the rear before I fitted a Öhlins
