Ideally 531 or better. Probably consider carbon. Threaded or unthreaded, will get headset to match.

Got a pair of forks from a Peugeot - very long steerer and threaded so you can cut down to suit and go threadless or get the thread cut. Unsure of tubing but no mudguard eyes - i'd have thought they are definitely higher end than 531!

I have a set of new old stock Roberts forks, threaded. Unsure of exact steel... no mudguard eyes... in a Primer finish.

Interested in all these,though the carbon ones are out of price range. Can you guys offer some prices for the Roberts and the Peugeot?
