I found an old 1986 Fuji Sagres in the trash the other day. It belonged in the trash as the frame was bent. However, the fork is fine. I have a 1985 Fuji Allegro which has a steel fork (Valite on 1986 models) so I want to swap the Valite 1986 Sagres fork into my 1985 Allegro.
Question: Would this work and what tools would I need? I am a complete bike newbie, but I am technically inclined, so what I'm really curious about is how much would it cost for all the tools.
Is the procedure so difficult that I would be better off taking it to a bike mechanic? How much is a reasonable price for such a service?
Thanks so much,
