1940 Girder Forks - reaming bushings

So somewhere around two years after the Tiger 100 reached my house I got around to checking the various components for proper fit, etc. When I took a look at the girders, I decided that the bushings were a bit too tight for my preference (all new bushings and spindles).

I contacted ICS Cutting Tools in Casco, WI to see if they might have a hand ream to fit my application. They did not stock a ream that met my needs, but were happy to manufacture one to my specifications. I received the ream in about 10 days, and it worked like a charm.
