Did the same after sourcing Syncros Powerlite forks and that project is progressing nicely now!

Looking forward to seeing this develop, especially when considering your alias...

must be a frame to mate it with. What I am looking for is like one of those holy grails, so I must find something rare/ but maybe not a grail... I have a plan

This frame, strip it and repaint it

.. this style since that frame is a holy grail

I find the original Nishiki forks much more appropriate than accutrax. ...pick rather a FC buck shaver :wink:
