Just bought a frame 70s falcon frame and could do with a matching fork!

Chrome or not, I'm not fussed, as long as its a Reynolds 531 1" threaded fork with a 185mm steerer.

Thanks!

Thanks for replying. Unfortunately I'm not to clear about clearances, I'm fairly new to bike building. The original advert for the bike says that its fits 27 x 1 1/4 Wheels

http://www.classicrendezvous.com/British_isles/Falcon/Falcon_cat_1.htm

Any help is appreciated.

the two in the pics are different, one has guards, one doesnt.
Ok, for 27". So, looking at the brake caliper, what have you got to fit on it? What is on the back?

Got a pair of forks in the shed. Will measure and let you know.

Came off an Italian bike, would say they are comparable weight wise to a 531 and likely to be Columbus of some form.... 10 quid collected from North Sheffield, or can bring them in to city centre office during the week?
