I recently picked up a bargain set of Z1 Drop-off forks due to the fact that they have a really short (160mm) steerer. I've been in touch with the marzocchi distributor, and I'm happy that steerers can be pressed in and out of fork crowns, so now I'm looking for a donor with a decent length steerer.
Has anyone got a broken marzocchi fork from a similar era with a straight 1 1/8 steerer, ideally the longer the better?

TIA

Are they knackered apart from the steerer? How much are you looking to sell them for?

I've got these. Not sure of the model, z1 bam? Steerer is just over 200mm and the crown is bolt on.

In good shape, though missing an adjuster. Slight scuff on one stanchion but move freely and adjusters that are present seem to work.

Seems a bit of a shame to trash a working fork to get the steerer from it. I should have possibly specified broken ones.
Cheers though.

They would benefit from a service and are a bit tatty cosmetically. I'm not after a lot for them - £30.
