I'm looking for a Colnago chromed straight fork to go with my 56" Master Olympic.

the head tube on the frame is 160mm so I guess I need a steerer tube of at least 175mm in length.

Fork would need to be shipped to Singapore.

If you have one for sale or know of one, please let me know.

Many thanks.

175mm would be too short. General rule of thumb for a threaded headset is headtube + 40mm, so you would need steerer of 200mm

Thank you kind sir. Apologies, I'm new to all this.

And I agree, Sheffield is indeed a top city. :)

Was also looking for a 55cm Master - eventually took a shorter set (190 and was too short even with low stack headset) and used a steerer extension.

Maestro's in UK have new ones, but they're £200 range.
