Very elegant ride you have there, my friend. As previously stated, that is a gorgeous colour for the frame. It looks as though the paint is in really good condition too.

Thank you guys. Acutally I already have a Yo Eddy Team and BOI fork waiting for respray. What I'm looking for is this box-crown fork, don't you think it's much more good looking (in black)?

It's one of the nicest forks I've seen, same BOI. However is no go with this frame IMO. As Gazz said nothing wrong with Tange, nice fork and suits bike. Monsters were orginally supplied with segmented Tange forks so same range just different type. If were me I'd rather spare money and leave as is or find rigid Struts.

I find your Monster Fat with the current tange fork very nice. The box-crown fork was meant and is more suitable for a Wicked Fat Chance.
