Are the dropouts welded on mate? I've got a set in front of me and they appear to be inserts into the tube of the leg so I figured they'd be bonded?
Also I was going to go for a clamped on brake mount like you'd find on the USE trials forks (again I've got one in front of me) that way you can have either disk or rim mounts you'd just detach the ones you weren't using.
And the legs and steerer just slot in and are held in place by a few bolts so no welding plus you could supply them with a longer leg so you could adjust the axle to crown height to suit the frame and have the crown made to suit a 1 1/4" steerer with adaptors for the 1" and 1 1/8" steerers so you can swap steerers to suit as well.
On the other points I don't doubt it'll be expensive but I often do more ridiculous things than this and I find a way even if it means selling my car etc. to fund it, I don't proceed with ideas that are to risky and they usually pay off and I can always buy another car.
Also it's fair point but I am well aware the forks will need testing and the material used will be of a certain grade which is why I'm putting this out there so those with more knowledge than I can steer me in the right direction.
Come on guys a man can dream! And if that dream becomes a reality there may be a cool titanium available this time next year!
