I raked out the fork using a hastily-made plywood tool I created with a jigsaw. It went ok. Offset (rake) is now 70mm. I overshot my goal a little, but it should be similar to the Soma Grand Randonneur, with about 30mm trail.

Then I did the braze-ons. First, canti posts.

Then, the low rider eyelets.

Now I am on to little bits and bobs. I have cable stops and bottle bosses and fender mounts and other stuff that I've done but haven't photographed yet, plus a little surprise that is NOT finished yet; I will post about that later after I've done it!
