Old and new

Here are two examples of forks that I built earlier this month. One has a modern Pacenti MTB crown, the other has the original crown where Kirk Pacenti got the idea for his modern version. While the old crown has really nice lines, the new one is definitely an improvement structurally and is a lot easier to work with. It's pretty funny that the two crowns were made almost 30 years apart , while the forks were built on the same day.
