A new steerer can be brazed or welded on if you can source the tube (assuming its steel) Any competent frame shop can do the work and the same frame shop may have the steerer too.

Peter at Ceeway still has some threaded 1 1/4 steerers (http://www.framebuilding.com/Forks.htm)
220mm overall, with 50mm threaded.

If that's not the right length, the steerer can still be cut and spliced in with an internal (28.6mm) sleeve.
Easier and less disruptive than a complete new steerer tube if the tube is brazed, and the only realistic option if the steerer is welded.

PM if you need details.

All the best,

Hi All

Thanks for the replys
The fork is the Alu fork for a Sbike
Not sure if Steerer is steel or not I will get some photos up at the weekend
I have a low stack headset but have a feeling it might not be enough :? Steerer looks like it might be replacable but not 100% Sure

Fork is same as phot below
I will get some close up photos of my fork this weekend

The steerer tube is normally titanium for Sbike.
If it helps you...
