I am building a cafe bike with a Benelli Mojave frame and a BSA A65 motor. I would like to use a set of forks from a ‘71 BSA.
The steering tube in the stock BSA lower triple clamp is too short for the Benelli steering head. Since I have a lathe and a milling machine, making a longer tube is not a problem. Unfortunately, I do not see how to remove the old tube, other than by cutting it off at the base and drilling the stub.
Is there an easy way to remove the steering tube from the lower triple clamp? I don’t want to butcher the thing unless I have to.
