Trial One

Well, I didn't have enough money with Christmas coming to buy a `61 Rudge with dynohub on CList for $60.
I have very little money, so I attempted to fix my forks on Victor(DL-1).
I removed the brakes then the wheel,( I don't know why I forget to take pictures) removed the fork (yes the bearings went all over) flipped it upside down on the floor and stepped on it, checked the brake clearance, repeated.
After I had bent it back as close as I could, I placed the fork in my oven at 550 degrees Fahrenheit, for about an hour then turned the oven off and let it cool slowly in the oven.
I will post updates on whether it works or not.
