No need to go skint on this build. Fit some Pace rigid forks, M750 groupo some big @$$$$$$$ rubber and you will have an innnnnnnncredible rider. Hope a FAT virgin, maybe Ein kleiner Liebhaber snaps it up 8)

These frames are suspension corrected so not sure if a switchblade would work!?
Good frame at a great price though, shame its not a S/M :)

Likely too short axle - crown. length

Also to avoid any possible confusion for readers , the last posted image was of me riding a FAT Chance Ti S/M.1993.13 on RC30s (a-c420mm). Just put that up for the atmosphere / historical interest/retrobikepassion.

A-C of yours is around 40mm too short for this. Pace forks come up regularly for very reasonable money. Build it up as you go. Stick this up on Facebook OP, it will be gone back across the pond in 60 secs at this crazy low price :wink:

Ah, thank you very much for your answers on my question about the fork. So Tange Switchblade is not so fine for this Frame - best of all would be a originally Yo Eddy fork (from Chris Chance or reproduction from Georg Blaschke Gebla in Germany - IBC-Forum-User "Edelziege"), am I right?

Only if you want people to start dribbling uncontrollably when you post pics of it :lol: A Glenn Falls era factory made BOI fork is incredibly rare long enough for this frame and will cost more than this frame 8) You can pick up a decent Pace fork for £1-150 which has the right geo for this. Dunno how much Gebla charge for a repro BOI. Would love to know :wink:
