Hi Folks

Looking for a set of suspension forks to retro fit to my 1995 Marin Nail Trail. Must have post mounts for V brakes and a 180mm Threaded Steerer Tube that is 1& 1/8" Diameter. Anything considered just let me know what you have got.

Cheers

Will consider something that can have the steerer post easily swapped out.

Thanks for your efforts but alas when polishing the frame up today I have discovered a crack in the headstock so project over methinks. Build back up as standard and use on the turbo trainer over winter. No happy!!!!
