Any threaded fork to go with a late 80's steel frame. Preferably white or naked.

By steerer he means the length of the tube that goes through the frame from top to bottom. Sadly it's vital info if we are to help you out :wink:

Let us know as I have a nice set of white (well, slghtly off white) Columbus forks for you.

Thanks "agentorange", yes I should've wrote a bit more. That's what I meant, streerer length or the length/height of your fork's tubing from where the crown race sits to the top of the threading.

If you don't have the fork in front of you perhaps you can tell us the frame's head-tube measurement, its height.

I've got a set of Reynolds forks 200mm, in grey primer ready for paint.
You could drop a 6mm washer on them or cut a bit off (easy with a hacksaw)
PM me your email and I'll send pics.
