I'll see your NOS Unishock (1 1/4" threaded) & raise you a NOS Unishock VR (1 1/8" threaded). Both still in the box. I'll take pics and post up.

my ti rigids have better travel than those scotts.......
but they were lighter than the steel forks that came on the bike........hehe

I had one just like the white and green there on my 92 Fire Mountain back in 1994. I cut the steerer tube off my project two's and brazed them in place of the scott steerer tube cause they wouldn't fit.

Worst. Decision. Ever.
