I want to take my 88' Stumpy out on the trails this summer and want to find some suspension forks to suit, the theme is "Gold", so Rock Shox Mag forks with the gold lowers would be ideal, but not averse to an early set of RS-1's either.

-Must be in reasonable cosmetic condition (do not need to be minty-fresh though).
-Must be in working order (I don't want to take on a "project" set)
-Must be 1" steerer, threaded (will consider threadless)
-Must have minimum 140mm of steerer (160mm for threadless).

What you got? :P

Ok, I could handle it having a 1" threadless steerer, but would need to be at least 160mm long.

And forks must be in working order, not too much to ask surely? :P :lol:

Ooo! :)

Yep, any year will do :lol:

ok, I'd prefer the black brake arch version (earlier model??), but I'm not overly fussed about that.

Thanks for looking :)

Been out all day.
I can do a black brace (not sure of condition though) legs would probably be 1994 MAG21's (the gold alu stanchion and lower leg year).
Of course they've been fully serviced and have new air valves in them.

Just need to find them and check them for paint condition.
