How far can one get on a fork rebuild during a 3 year old's nap? About this far...

The top picture is distressing until one reads the fine print... Looks like you collided with something very hard!

Are the fork parts in decent shape? I assume you will install new seals as part of the project...

Wish I could be there to help. I think your forks need more springs... on the outside.

I'll pass on the running into something.

The parts look pretty good. The tubes have a little surface rust but it's above the lowers travel. I was able to take it off almost entirely with emery cloth. This is a really common problem because the Brits didn't have hard chroming down. I'm gonna put gaiters back on it anyway.

The seal holders are TIGHT. There's a factory tool for loosening them

I'm gonna take to the local Triumph grouch to have em broken down.
