Jez, your 3s - are they 1" threaded & how long? Why ask about the legs? Are they knackered?

The lower legs been resprayed. I can send you a pic. They are 1" and threaded but have a very short steerer... Like I said really they are suitable if you want to use them for bits as you probably wont use the crown and steerer.

Ok thanks Jez, are these 3s? ebay #7238491717 (Please excuse my ignornace) I have always fancied a set of these and now I know they would fit perfectly. Condition is suspect but if I can buy yours and use for spares I would get these.
Thanks!

They look like "Manitou Sports" which I think are essentially the same as the 2's.
