I checked the welds and they are sound, but it still gives me the willies. I cannot imagine why anyone would do such a weird mod. I guess it was a crude attempt to give straight suspension forks a bit of cruiser feel by adding slows the steering down a noticeable amount. But it's such an ugly way to do it! I'd simply have added extension plates to move the axle slots forward giving the same effect. Two little plates welded on is a much better way to do this.
If more is better, then too much is just enough.
If you can't afford it, build it yourself.
