I have a beach cruiser I am currently building, but the threading on the fork is stripped. Is there any way of repairing the threads on the fork or would I have to replace the fork? The only proble with repacing the fork is that it's a 24 in bike and I am having trouble trying to find a 24 inch fork. Would a 26 inch fork work or would it mess up the ride of the bike. Thanks to everyone for all your help.
