Long Steer Tube!

This has to be the longest steer tube I have built on a Type II Fork. You can see the long machined butted section that will be pressed in after all of the welding processes are done. This is the safety sleeve, a long tapered piece of 4130 steel that will dissipate the fork loads in a safe manner. The safety sleeve will be very strong as it will be unaffected by any welding heat. This fork will be getting a traditional two tone paint job . Today the new disc mount will be put on . I'll keep you posted!
