Krakatoa

Riding a '38 Autocycle Deluxe
Hello Hello Cabers! Well we're headed towards spring finally and it's a good time to pull out those banged up forks and send them on to Vermont for a massage! PM or call for your fork & frame alignment/repair/resizing/rethreading needs! I am familiar with most fork types and their std/truss/springer variations. Probably half of these pictured are for my projects or reference, but the others are in stock...

I also do other kinds of work including small sheet metal re fabrication and repair of broken parts such as rack mounts, fender braces, chain guard front mount relocations etc... These two early Cleveland Welding Co Paisley chain guards were converted from women's front bracket position to men's.

How are the truss rods shortened and bent. Yet still retain original curvature in/ down ! !
I traced a pattern of the truss rod from the side to use as a comparison. The tubing bends fairly easily so be gentle. I did it by hand around a large diameter round cut off piece I had in a vise. Gently move the curve down from the top. Rotate the truss rod top plate a little bit to the side so that the truss rod can go where it needs to be and also you can mark it for a trim. Cut that small piece off the top with a small plumbing type tubing cutter btw it should be about the same size as the piece of steering tube you're going to trim off. Do one side at a time. Tubing ends need to be opened back up after cutting and also tapped with the correct tap for your truss rod bolt. Just got to go slow and roll and work them into position then trim.
