Poor guy does not look like he can afford to get hosed on a wrecked front end. I thought I heard him say what sounded like Poland. So, he may have gotten this from Poland....
The fork is from Tcheliabinsk region (400km south of Irbit), he got it for 7000rub (99$) +20$ for the transport to Kaliningrad.
He will recheck all the fork including the welds.

I have seen this guy before on Oppozit.ru with his ride from Kaliningrad to Crimea.


He just posted part 3 of the that trip on YouTube! He makes a pretty good video, and is helping me pick up some Russian for my next trip over there.

I remember those stairs and the fountain from the movie Battleship Potemkin.

pray the road is long , full of adventure, full of knowledge
not expecting that Ithaca will offer you riches
Ithaca has given you the beautiful voyage
