I got some of these forks installed on my Motobecane. I don't have the wheel attached yet.
I see the description says my brake plate needs a notch. My stock Moby brake plate doesn't have a notch. What does the notch do? Prevent the brake plate from spinning?
I realized my Peugeot 102 has a brake plate with a notch and the spoked wheels/tires on that are much nicer than the ones I have for the moby. I think I can swap em? But then my Moby wheels / brake plate wouldn't have the right notch for the peugeot. Also, how do you keep the wheel centered to the forks? I have a feeling I will need spacers, you just get rod stock and drill it out?
Also, should the black part of the tree touch this silver ring from the headset? (circled in blue) I would have to bring the plate down a little. Unsure of the angle. (shitty blue arrow cant see)
