Further down the rabbit hole. Took the headlight assembly off because it was rusty and bent AF. The picture of it on the bench it is sitting flush.

Think you'll be able to straighten it?

You did all that in that little oven? That was probably 4 hours of work with that thing haha.

Yup, and with cleaning and blasting it was more like 6 hours.

Forks rebuilt, set the tubes in some metal rescue for 24 hours and cleaned them up. Still some pitting but nothing going through the seals.  Fresh seals, fresh dust covers, fresh oil.  Shitty thing that brought the party to a vault was I forgot to put a spacer below the new steering bearings on the lower triple. Tried to install it on the neck but it bottomed out.  The bearing didn't survive being driven off so now I gotta get another. One more week down the drain

Unfortinuatly it is, for now I plan to leave it like that. I'll see if I decide to throw all that out the window later
