I recently acquired a couple of my dream bikes. Unfortunately one came with a surprise. A very disfunctional fork repair. what a bummer. Its sad that the person i bought this from was not told about the repair when he bought it. And it came to me under the same circumstances. Still a wonderful bike and i look forward to riding it. The current state of this fork and riding condition of this bike is binds when turning and a lot of play in the headset. Yesterday began the investigation on how to fix it. The steer tube is not straight and it is ovalized down low allowing for the play. I will be going to the bicycle recycling place here to look for 2 to 3 donor forks and my friend steve will be performing another repair. Here are before pictures.
