2013 April 15: Purchase tap for fork tubes (0.00 hours)

After conferring with several people who have used the commonly available replacement fork tubes with no trouble whatsoever, I've come to believe that my original bolts/fork tube combination are a bit of an anomoly (I also checked with another set of fork tubes I had previously purchased and a pair of disc brake fork top bolts). I found a 29 mm × 1 mm tap for sale and purchased it. Once it arrives, I hope to be able to open up the threads on the fork tubes just a bit.

Just another joy of working with 40 year old parts from a small production manufacturer. I don't mind, really...and I've always wanted to own this tap, anyway.
