Hi Maurice,

Thank you for those few kind words – Brian is one of the 3.74% I mentioned in my earlier post!

Now, How long have you owned the bike?  Why I ask is that it is not unknown for a seller to tighten up the fork spindles to hide the wear, so a lot will depend upon what you find tomorrow.

What area do you hale from?  There’s a company in the West Midlands who overhaulsd girder forks but will not sell the parts (the miserable git)  – but don’t fret they are not that difficult to do yourself if you have access to a lathe  to make the bushes etc. and a liquid reamer to fit them.

Keep us posted.
