I take it your not concerned about period correctness? Looks like a good frame to hang some nice boutique parts of then. Not sure about the carbon forks though. They tend to be quite a fat leg compared to the slinky tubes. What about a custom fork? Maybe a dekerf or a waltworks? Possibly a groovy or type II? Race face steel stem would be nice.
You're right that I'm not worried about period correctness, particularly as it's a period when I wasn't in the UK so have no real 'feel' for the era. I understand where you're coming from with the fat carbon legged forks but having just fitted some to a mates bike they do ride very nicely - in addition, would period correct suspension forks not also be quite fat? I do like the idea of a custom fork but that might well be a real budget challenger as the carbons can be had new for under £100 and the custom ones will be well distant of £200 I suspect.
Current inclination is to get it rideable, enjoy it and adapt from there.
It's time to bite the bullet and get some bounce on the front, I'm afraid. Some decent modern forks too!
Steady on there big man, one thing at a time!
