Trike trouble

Hello to all. So I've got a vw trike project im in the process of rebuild. Trouble is the front forks are unknown and the bodged on front caliper is caput. I am at a loss as to what caliper will do the job. So the question is how do I determine what the forks are and the right caliper to refit. The other problem being I removed the top nuts expecting the springs to pop out. They did not. Not a problem but have discovered no oil in legs so am unsure as to weight of oil/airgap etc. Even more frustrating I tried to Google a local garage that does class 3 / trike mot in Birmingham and found sodall. Any of you nice folks got any ideas to any of my woes I would really appreciate the help. Please be patient with replies as I'm totally new to this forum thingy. And many thanks in adbance

Post some pics on your profile and hopefully the forks can be identified the oil maybe a trial and error as the vw setup will be a different wight to what ever the bike was

I'm not 100% sure but I think those forks belong to a Harley Davidson sportster 48 and are missing the dust covers.
