Having just paid $338 (£262)for a 1991 GT team avalanche fork, headset, shipping from the USA to the uk and stem (the stem is what i needed as my bike had incorrect stem

I wondered what’s the most paid for that final part to make the build “correct”

And most importantly was it worth it??

The seller wouldn’t split the stem and fork so the fork I will either sell on or swap with the Gt 2x4 fork I have on the bike now as the new one was removed to put a rockshox fork on, so it’s like New.
