If you buy a retro Alan you should check the forks very carefully, they had a habit of snapping quite easily. As i often found out going down hill in a race :shock:

Retro Alans are usually minus original forks..... For this very reason.

Mine came with some horrible hi-ten touring forks..... Found some later threadless Alan forks on ebay but the correct forks for the frame are impossible to find.
