Default Re: What vintage fork will fit a 3-inch tire?

Thanks Gilbert. You are right. the true test will be to see it rolling. I'm happy that it looks good but "works good" is more important.

I had to take some time off yesterday obviously but I spent the last couple of days fitting the wheel/brake and clearing up some minor clearance and alignment issues. I'm very happy with the way it it works. I felt pretty smart for a moment, then reminded myself I had only copied a hundred year old design.

Painting now and then we'll see!
