Thanks to Jason Telford for sending me this information via email and to Patrick Hayes, Ralf Brinkmann, and Jeff Buick who posted this information on the old Yahoo! Loopframe_Guzzi news group (which has now moved to Groups.io).
- The length of a drum brake fork tube (only the tube) measures 575 mm (~22 5⁄8 inch) in length.
- The length of a disc brake fork tube (only the tube) measures 583.4 mm (~22 29⁄32 inch) in length. A measurement of another disc brake fork tube (only the tube) measures 580 mm (~22.83458 inch) in length.
The drum brake tube with the nut on the bottom (that holds the sleeve) is just about the same length as the disc tube.
