fork alignment

forks were way off on the y-plane, like a good 1.5" or so... figured I'd give the old-timer BMW method of y-plane fork alignment a try

after tightening up the rope every hour for 4 hours, the forks didn't move at all.

What did move the forks was sitting on top of the frame and holding the 2x4 with my own hands and using my own strength to re-align them. After about 2 minutes I got them to within about 1/8" of alignment and will close that gap tomorrow or later since I'm still waiting for fork rebuild parts.I'm amazed with all the force put on the tubes that they're still in perfect alignment on the x plane
