Period correct forks for Stuart’s Le Mans

Stuart wanted a set of forks to fit his Le Mans frame. As you can see it has the original version of an integrated headset. While that only really effects the length of the steerer it did seem important to create something that was of the era. So, a pair of original Reynolds fork blades and a Haden crown seemed appropriate. Enjoy your Christmas and in the words of one of my favorite TV programs ever. “Lets be careful out there”

While we missed the big wet the following week end, it was still pretty damp and dirty but that certainly didn’t detract from a fantastic day. Since I have complete faith in the bike I think the only product under test here was me. Have already signed up for next year so might see you there. https://cyclingtips.com/125km-holden-giro-della-donna/
