The first thing I noticed was the after market front fork. Why was the fork replaced? Most likely because the original one was damaged (bent it a crash). With that in mind, I would turn my attention to the frame and look for frame damage which might be easy to see if you see paint cracking as illustrated in the picture below (hard to tell but I would question the area immediately behind the top tube head tube lug)...

If there is no apparent frame damage, clean the bike up and spend only enough to make is road worthy and safe to ride. Then ride is and see if is, indeed, to your liking.
