WTB: One 04-07 919 Fork Tube/Stanchion

I've got a spare set of 04-07 forks that I'd like to rebuild and swap onto my bike (to replace a set of 05 forks that are soon to need resealing). However, one of the fork tubes has a nick in it. I'm looking around to see if anyone has a single straight fork tube (preferably cheap) they'd like to sell so I can avoid trying to fill/repair/etc the nick.

I just went and inspected the forms closely - looks like both have nicks and pits in them. Dunno if I would be better off trying to find another set of tubes, another set of forks entirely, sending the forks out to be stripped and re chromed or what.

Could you find a pair of f4i forks for the same or cheaper price? If so, go that route and don't look back.

All the cheap F4i forks I see around are usually being sold because they're less than straight. :P
