Adding front fork braze-ons. Will it weaken?
Well title pretty much states my question, basically wanting to upgrade a 70's Peugeot for touring and want to add a lowrider front rack, so I'd need braze-ons in the middle of the forks for mounts (already have eyelets near axle for lower mounts), now will this weaken my forks too much? or is it a safe thing to do?
Also on a side note, the axle dropouts seem to be just barely narrow of what I need to fit a modern axle, would grinding them ever so slightly wider do anything harmful?
Thanks in advance.
