Love those hose clamps on the fork legs, that go just far enough round to hold but no further. Beautiful detail.

Beautiful work! Am curious if you used a solder pot for the cables...if you solder them in the conventional way they will be brittle and break, I learned that the hard way. FWIW I didn't want to invest in a solder pot so I used an iron pipe cap instead and a propane torch for heat. The page below from Flanders was a big help...

Yes, I did the same thing as you. Iron pipe cap with torch.
