I bought a top triple clamp from ebay, same model, three years younger and in great condition....didn't fit! They changed the fork offset between 73 and 76. One more thing to sort out and sap my funds. I got a local machine shop to bore it off centre and sleeve it down to fit.

Anyway, it rolls now so I rolled it out of the garage to take a photo just to cheer myself up.

I've ordered some mandrel bends so I can make the header which will be a bit of fun next week.

The trouble with the world is that the stupid are cocksure and the intelligent are full of doubt.
