Help ! Trying to complete a build fast before the trails turn to mush....

Looking for a set of M3 forks ideally threaded 170-175 + mm or threadless. Must be 1 1/8th correct OEM Manitou 3 crown/steerer, no DIY fly-pressed steerer swop jobs please... :)

Interested in a non working fork in good condition with seized up elastomers or even just the crown and steerer only if its just lying around in the shed supporting a spiders web.

Hit me with it

Will

I have some 1-1/8 threaded Manitou 3's that need new elastomers.
PM me if you're interested and I can get some pics over to you.
Cheers

^^ Alas the 150mm steerer is too short for my needs. :cry:

Surely there is a spare crown/steerer lying around out there in RB cyberspace ? Or a mint oem Manitou 3 fork feeling a little unloved, dreaming of hopping and skipping its way along the trails again :lol: Will also consider threadless 1 1/8th if the steerer is long enough.


Oh Manitou 3, where art thou ?

Still looking for a 170-175mm 1 1/8th threaded steerer Manitou 3 or 4 crown or consider same again 220mm 1 1/8th thread less.

Happy to buy a good shape OEM fully working elastomer Manitou 3/4 fork to above specs too, as I like these forks.

Help WHY ? :facepalm:
