All very nice and French but I need a Davis sand cast fork crown
Come to the talk the wealth of experience and Knowledge of the Veteran Cycling Club members can not be matched. There will be people there who can tell you about the construction and how to source for pennys so I there is bound to be someone who knows about die cast fork crowns.
awesome definitely going to be there.
Great to hear it over the next week I will be posting more frame building videos
