Hi. In looking for nice fork with a 1" steerer for a Roberts dogs bolx.
I would really like a renoylds 753 but probably never find one. Maybe a pace rc35 or even a pace rc30. If you have anything in half decent condition that you are willing to sell please let me know asap. Many thanks

What’s the headtube length? I’ve got a Roberts fork here. Not a ForkPlay, so has curved legs, but it is fillet brazed.

Hi. My steerer needs to be 180mm. Can the steerer be changed if not long enough?Do you have any pictures please?

Steerer (threaded) is way shorter... 125mm.
Must’ve been from a very small frame.
You can have a framebuilder splice in an extension, but you’d have to investigate the cost etc...

For avoidance of doubt, the purple fork shown has been reunited with the matching White Spider.
The blue fork is available... does have mudguard eyes (but you could always chop these off, especially if respraying).
No Roberts marking or frame number but sold to me as by Roberts and from comparison with a few of Chas’ forks I’m pretty sure they are. The brazing around the crown and shape of the brake bosses all consistent.
Wouldn’t want a fortune for them.
