So it was time to work on the forks. Had to figure a way to slide the dust sleeves (thin sheet metal sleeve slid over the top forks). They were rusted on like everything else has been. So a few weeks of soaking to no avail. Time to call on some friends. With some “massaging” the left sleeve came off unscathed. But the right side sleeve was obviously a home made repair. Upon removing it we discovered why the repair was made! Time for some heavy machining to make this repair! And so it goes.
