    JDowns, a traveler who I am following via ride report, has got some front-end damage to his Super Sherpa and needs front-end parts. He's in Colombia right now looking for a solution.


    Anybody have any ideas?

    It sounds like he's approaching this in the right way.
    Step 1 - learn the fork sizes of his and other bikes that could slip into the current tree.

    Sounds like an entire new front wheel assembly is needed. The front brake mount will be another one to tackle. That could be machined, if needed.

    What an unfortunate happening - el mar y los cielos.

    This guy has a great attitude.
