Lovely bike, shame the forks spoil the build as they are IMO fugly
Matter of opinion though, if your happy with that's all good
the fork is the highest point of that build. true high end, rare, great performing piece of cycling machinery.
i don't get it: an Orange, Kona or a Gt are praised as a beauties but that handmade by cyclist to the highest standards of performance groovy fork is seen as ugly...
Well, that box fork is made after the heavy duty box fork of fcc, you know the one, made of reynolds 531 and such. IT was a fork intended for heavier riders, not so much for good looks- a very purpose built fork.
So I can understand many people not finding it aesthetically pleasing, while others worship anything that comes out of Groovy's doors
I like it, though I think it would look better without the decals, and installed on my 85 Fat
