Then place the swing arm plates outside the fork legs.

Look closely at the pictures. If you really want them perfect just send them to me and I will make them right. I even align all the fork tube ends and fix the fork so you can press on a crown race. Crown race included.
How much is the service? I'm definately interested since I plan to use these forks on my next build even if they don't work on this one.

I changed out the plates and hardware and took some more pics. As you can see, the problem is the width of the spokes at the base, (about 3 inches) and the width between the lock-nuts, (only 2 5/8ths inches) . There just doesn't seem to be enough room. What is the width on the Worksman wheels?
The pics don't show well, but the nuts are partially inside the spokes, (even I know that that's not a good idea)

BTW, I love your bike.
