Having now put it back together I have a theory as to why the parts became detached in the first place.

There are a pair of Nylon bushes within the caps which are held in place by a collar (see arrow), which if you don't know has to be unscrewed first it will prevent the stanchion being pulled out as there's another bush at the bottom and there's a few mm of interference.

If someone tried to pull the legs off and the hard anodising wasn’t strongly bonded, then could it be that this gave first???

I started this thread a year ago today and I thought I'd be a little further on from where I am now!

Going to get a little distracted for a while putting the older fork on the Pro Comp plus I've got some tweaks to make on the Mountain Klein, so it'll be a couple of months before you see any movement on this.

In the meantime as a place holder let's start from the beginning with a new image...

That picture does look very nice but the new fork is silver, so I think I'll stick with the plan for now :wink:
