  4. Yes anti dive is a known good feature of leading link forks when I have been setting up bike calipers onto odd thing I set the caliper onto the disc in the right place for pad contact up/down with the adapter attached then rubber band the brake lever to hold it all in place then rotate disc to wherever the adapter is gonna attach always make sure the disc clears the top of the pad
  5. Front brake with linkage like that should cause brake force to make the front end rise = anti dive braking system
  6. Looking good the motorcycle Barry in me says that's a leaf sprung leading link fork you are building not a girder fork (girders have linkages at top not bottom) but it does look evil and dangerous so big thumbs up
