Fork These Bolts

The fork bolts require a 36mm socket, which was happy to sell me.  I took the angle grinder to it to flatten the face since the bolts are pretty shallow.  It wasn't perfect, but it got the job done.

Shockingly, I wasn't able to loosen the bolts with my big breaker bar, so I had to put a pipe on the end to get some more leverage.  The shovel was used to prevent the fork from turning.  It also matches my short shorts.

I only loosened the bolts for now.  I will remove the fork as soon as I get the engine out, which will hopefully be this weekend.
