Due to a potential swap with Hilts, I may be in need of some steel 1" rigid forks in threaded flavour for an 18" Explosif.

Anyone got anything of suitable condition/quality?

:)

Silver Orange F7s?

Problem is that they were run with an threaded to aheadset adaptor which has seized in them, I've managed to saw out some of the adaptor but its pretty well corroded in.

If the steerer length is correct and you're interested, you can have them for the cost of the postage as I'm not going to guarantee that you'll be able to free the adaptor or that they will be any good once you have :)

Will post pics and take measurements if you're interested.

Couldn't get them off the frame with the adaptor stuck in the top! :)

Anyone else?
