have they cut the clamp off and then bolted straight through the lever? looks like they have. can't you remove it by undoing the allen key bolt through the top of the lever?

I have tried gently but did not want to cause harm to the lock out itself at the fork end (turning the allen key, turns the lever)

just tried removing the bolt on one of the lock out levers on mine and it does come out, the bolt just holds the lever onto the clamp.

Looking good Ian. The seat and tyres are a nice match 8) . It's good to see it built up now and I'm sure you're enjoying it :D
