is the super big fork rescuable?....its proportions better suit the frame......
For the story, I have bought a quit complete 8700 in belgium, ther's 2 years ago, with big fork. 6 month latre, I have found this smaller frame and the wheels but without a fork. But some parts of the first bike were a little rust but can be cleaned. But for the fork, it did some noise, and the painting in the down legs were going away with a lot of rust? I drilled the fork and a lot of rust parts were going away. So for security (My bikes are all riden !) I prefer to find a new big fork. I have found these this summer, NOS, and it's really the same as the original.
So, I have to do another paint job of the bike. The fork will be neon orange too !
If someone could give me how to pickle varnish without damaging the carbon tubing ?
Well… it's really not acceptable…
