I'm using a set of shovel tele forks circa 1973. I liked the look of them & decided to shoehorn a 21" Yamaha dirt-bike wheel in. I like old drum brakes best up front. I got some big help from JonnyEightHammers who is a real engineer. He reduced the Harley spindle to accomodate new bearings - they are bigger than the stock Yamaha ones though. I shaved about 20mm off the brake plate to get it in this setup. I had an alloy tab blobbed onto the left fork slider to tether the brakeplate neatly.
