Cool looking paper weight

I got the forks back together on the Triumph yesterday. That was a learning experience. One fork lower was very corroded inside and the tube would not plunge smoothly. I spent a while with an old fork tube covered in sand paper smoothing out the inside. These fork gaiters are from some Honda ATV that apparently work out pretty good. The Trump is sitting the height I want it to be. I plan on getting the wheel polished and assembled and on the bike today. Then I can determine what size fork spacer to make to lower it. I also need to make a tool to tighten the fork, that looks like this:

Try a pair of bearing balls placed in the indentations for the tool and a pair of vise grips.
