Hi Guys I am looking to get some A head forks for my Sunn, I would like to get smoe original Sunn ones but do not know much about Sunn and what their forks were like?
Who is making nice 26" forks?
I want a nice curved taper, a fork that looks quite sleek, I am doing the bike as a summer fast type bike, with more Road riding than off road(light trails etc) V Brake mounts no disc mount at all.

Ritchey Logic would fit the bill nicely here.

They come flavoured in 1 1/8" too.

I scored a set of spinners/Diamondback forks today around 200mm steerer so they should work out nicely. Thanks for the replies.

Try www.Edinburghbikeco They offered me some forks for my Bear Mountain in 26in for £30.00. They do A-head and screw.
If you don't see what you want on their webpage send them an Email.
They are very helpful
