i am after a pr of either 1" threadless or threaded forks BUT must have allen key brake mounting ability .
Must also have a total length of 270mm if non threaded or if threaded style needs to have around 185 mm before any threads .
would prefer chromed but cant be fussy

W H Y must be cheapish

you could always use an 8mm HSS drill bit to convert an old style fork to accept recessed nut
