I definitely noticed the diameter and length difference from most, I believe the Ciao forks are built the same from my understanding. I was toying with the idea of creating a bushing from Delrin to fill the void. I’m going to ponder about that for a while, may just take the leap and buy the aftermarket EBR forks and be done with it!
Appreciate the cutout shot, that makes sense as to how it all lines up now.. Mine had a seat on it the entire time out in the elements, and because of that the seat pan is absolutely toasted. I’m hoping the seat acting as a sponge for years kept most of the water out of that space. Guess we’re fixing to find out. If there’s a leak on that backside there’s not much of a fix other than building it as a top tank. Im thinking positive thoughts haha
