Adding mid fork mounts

Posted on
  • I want to add a mid fork mount to an 80's 531 fork. I'd like to drill the tube and braze in a recessed bottle cage style boss.

    My question is will they be strong enough? With older forks you often see a pannier mount brazed to the front of the fork. Were modern forks have the more aesthetically pleasing recessed mount. Any one know why?

    The fork isn't butted and I could even add a little reinforcing plate. Will it work?
