Made it. The bike was an afternoon project a buddy and I did. It went well enough that we built another one after this one. We cut the original fork in half, stuck each end in a long pieces of steel scrap, and welded around each seam. The fork legs sleeve about 6 inches into the extra metal. The only weak spot seems to be the crown, but that's more Huffy's fault than mine. We also lengthened the downtube to slacken the head angle.
