Default Re: Front Fork Replacement

my neighbor has a stick welder. he's going to help me lengthen the fork pike. He suggested we cut it, insert a smaller diameter pipe inside the cut fork pipe and weld it back together at the desired length. since i won't lose anything from trying, we are going to go ahead with it tomorrow. i'll take lots of pics of the process.

on a side note, i called the local bike shop and asked about just getting some front suspension forks. the guy said they started at $200 and all he head next was me laughing as i hung up the phone on him.

so, i have these old there anyway to lube them or make them more 'shock absorbent'?
