Forks condition?

Hi guys,

I'm looking for new shocks on ebay. I found this one for a pretty good price. The only thing that worries me is the fact that the place where the fork slides, the black section seems worn out a lot? Is this normal? I'm guessing that's due to high millage?

---> Fork link

Thanks a lot :)

I want to replace my current forks which are leaking and have a broken fender mount, but getting myself into a new fork seal replacement job isn't my goal.

I'm assuming that if they have so much dirt, the seals aren't in the best condition either?

If anything, I can always install the gen1 forks? Would there be any modification required? Spacers? Bushings? Wheel? Thanks.
