Looks very splayed at the bottom edge, is it a good fit on the forks?
I have just had to sort a nasty nammer out and scrapped the forks and headset in the end, beyond use and safety.
Any good alloy welder will be able to sort the cracks and tidying up, I use a local chap from the Troglodytes, rough price at mates rates about £50, but obviously a local scooter shop to you should have a contact locally.

The top rear shock mount looks like it is a misplaced Nam lash up with 2 nails inserted through it and bent over to hold the bush in place :shock:
Sadly a common practise :roll:

Shaun.
