I just found a store that sells RST steerers pretty cheaply, in all the lengths and diameters we'd need for our retrobikes.

https://www.bike24.com/p26275.html

It's rumoured that these are identical in spec to Bomber steerers (or at least are compatible). Has anyone tried one on their bombers?

I've used RST steerers from rose bikes before and they fit just fine.

Yes they work fine also in case you come in contact with them DNM forks also use same clamp in steerer.

Alternative perfectly good bodge, 28.6mm aluminium alloy round tube with 3.2mm wall thickness and a metal 27.2mm - 28.6mm seat post shim. Stretch the shim around tube which gives 30mm clamping diameter for the forks and lower baring race. Use star nut for 1" AHeadset.

Result any steerer length you want for fraction of cost.
