It's easy enough to find a steel chrome fork to replace this one with.
As I said in my post, apparently his father rode the bike for a long time with no problems. However, even a 1% failure rate is high enough to cause me to want to change it out. Especially if I ended up being in the 1%! Plus, who would want aluminum to save weight on a bike that is already probably heavy? The loss of ride quality negates any advantage in weight-savings for me.
