The front fork was full of gapping holes from someone whole thought they could braze the fork.
So I finally found time to finish the fork on the tricycle project. Final tally is 25 hours to repair the fork and make new caps. There was no profit in this job, in fact I spent more in material and shop supplies than I got paid. I hate when that happens. I'm glad to see this one go home it was a real pain...
The 1st pic is what I started with. 2nd pick is the finished repair. The 3rd pic is the new fork caps I made out of 6061 aluminum. The 4th pic is the caps mocked up in place.
