I need some forks. Here is a picture of the old ones.

The steerer is very nearly 200mm and is standard 1"

There is a single eye on each dropout. I am after something as close to these as possible. Material 531 if poss. My brake caliper is fairly short so these need to be 700c.

What is out there in retro land?

Ideally, yes. This is my Winter bike that came off second best against a car. I could use P-Clips but would prefer eyes on the dropouts.

It'll need to be threaded unless I get a new bars and stem combo. There is no immediate rush as I'm riding the Kowal again.

I only mention them as they're red too.

I have some others but they are more modern in style but are threaded.

It is somewhat of a bitsa. I almost got some new forks but they seemed somewhat lacking in rake.
