Installing front suspension

After machining 4 aluminium discs that keep the metal springs aligned the front suspension was re-installed.

At first ride trial the steering proved almost lethal, it had to be adjusted to be far less reactive for more precision. Otherwise the bike wil definitely turn upside down. As can be seen in this picture, the chosen spring allows a few mm's negative travel to cope with holes.

Happy cycling. It all works fine. finally a face behind these repairs. Finally some driving at speed. I really let the suspension do it's job over speed bumps, kerbs and some brick road.
