Luiz,
Nice job on the speedo and headlamp brackets.

Hope you don't mind an observation but the way your top girder fork spindles have been assembled looks odd/wrong to me.

The top spindles have been inserted the wrong way round. The square 'adjuster' end should be on the left.

On the right side You have an extra 'thin' nut on each top spindle fitted inside the top link. I don't think there should be a nut in that location.

Have you got a photo of how the nuts are located on the left side?

I have attached a diagram from the WNG manual showing how the links/spindles should be assembled if you want to double check how yours is assembled.

Also the chamfer on your top links are fitted with the chamfer in the top outer position - the chamfer should be on the inside and at the bottom

Cheers

All your comments are welcome Alan!
Thank you very much for doing them!
It is a pending work to disassemble the fork since I have noticed that the bushings do not work and have a lot of wear.
It is something I received badly assembled.... :(
