An Interesting post and replies Guys 😀 😀 For what its worth here are my thoughts. 80yr old + frames and forks are an unknown quantity! With the best will in the world it is IMPOSSIBLE short of NDT (None destructive testing) to be sure of what you have. If, as the owner and USER you are happy with what you do then that’s fine. 😀 😀 😀 However! If at some time the bike is passed on to a different owner then the “Fit and proper” use of such sold goods comes under a very different set of criteria. 😕 😕 I am thinking here of the relatives of the buyer (USA) who may not appreciate what has been done!!!!! An interesting conundrum eh????? It could be QUITE informative if a lawyer amongst us were to comment regarding this. Regards Ted 😕 😕
