Hahah! Seems safe
Not safe but cool. Is it a hack or a bodge?
'Home made' bike.

Would this be heavy and flex being (presumably) mild steel...
Reminds me of my Onza T-pro trials bike I had when I was 16 that was made from box section tubing for whatever reason.
Interesting. Any pictures?
Theres barely any pics of the model I had online, this is the only one I can find of it built up. Mine had mini v's rather than those hydro maguras though.

anyone tried anything like this? thinking of giving it a go.
Me too. Probably after christmas now. Let me know how you get on

Ah was worried that they might not have the structural integrity to deal with the forces involved
Be fine. I believe Brooklyn ben did it on his gangsta track. V1 fork - not your typical steel fork tho.
re canti bosses, regardless of the strength I think track forks would be too narrow
Here's my brake boss solution:
I wasn't sure what thread it would belong in at the time but this feels like the right place.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
