New front forks
A few posts back I mentioned I was building up a single speed bike using a donor bike frame from my workmate. As the forks on the Nishiki frame were bent due to a crash, I've been hunting around the local bike shops for a suitable pair of replacement forks and when returning from my bike & hiking trip last Sunday I stopped by a small bike shop and was luckily enough to find a pair of badly chipped Bridgestone 700c track racing forks with nice lugs. So after much hard work I have finally cleaned them up for repainting, pictured above are the forks due to be painted.
