I don't know the rake, It's a 1970s frame, a sort of mid level amateur racer. It has eyelets on the rear but not the front. I was thinking porteur conversion, but I guess getting a whole new fork would make more sense if I really want to do it? I was thinking it is better to silver braze the eyelets on as you don't risk melting the existing brass? BTW, I would be having someone else do the work. Is there a way to measure rake with common tools and how do I know what is appropriate for carrying a front load?
