    How difficult is it to replace the OEM front fork lowers with chrome ones? Are there any special tools required. Can I do it in a weekend?

    You may want to fill in the rest of your profile with the year and model of the bike and if it's FI or carb.

    I'm going out on a limb but from what I've seen, bike is 2003 FLSTC. (Heritage Softail Classic). Just my 2 cents.

    Yes 2003 FLSTCI Anniv

    I know it depends on the type of driving, but how often should front forks be rebuilt? I have 51 K on original forks

    An easy weekend project, the self help section was a great reference. It is a big improvement on the bike!

    If they show any signs of leakage around the seals or general sloppiness in rebound control that a service doesn't eliminate.
