Happens from going too tight on the fork bolts, dont be an ape putting the new front together, its actually super easy to break the clamp parts on the forks. Sounds kinda like a money pit. If you bought original forks from ebay may as well get seals and oil and maybe even bushings and go back together right and good instead of leaking or maybe even out of oil.

yer previous owner ape'd the pinch bolt, evidence was the crappy filler and paint that was ontop of it when it fell out.

to be fair besides my time which is free (unless you talk to my mrs of course, she will say other wise) i have not spent too much money on this yet.
parts list=

trike 750 GBP
tank 50 GBP
new windscreen 5 GBP
new front bearings 5 GBP
numerous bolts and fairing bolts 30 GBP
shocks complete 50 GBP (oil seals are intacked)
exhaust is solid, just where the headers go into the collector needs welding or clamping as they are loose no rust.

so unless theres more suprises, almost positive there will be.
