I view the lugs more as "first rate amateur work". But at this level, maybe it's time to call in the pros. When I look at them it's more "Damn! He had the right idea, but didn't quite pull it off.". Which I find more frustrating than when someone totally screws up.

The fork crown I just don't understand at all. Joe's modification is IMHO an improvement over stock though.
