I have some rust on my front forks. This question tells me how to deal with it, but I'd like to know whether it will be impacting the structural integrity of the forks.
I'm planning on going touring (on-road) and therefore loading the forks with a low-riders and panniers. If I clean this off and re-seal/paint over it, will my forks still be structurally sound?
The bike is a Dawes Super Galaxy, probably from the late 80s.
