I recently procured this from 'Lid'...
... which will be polished to within an inch of it's life, re-decalled & clear coated.
I was thinking of an 'all polished' M900 build, devoid of any anodizing what-so-ever. I've got a full M900 groupo with an M902 headset, polished Hyperlites, a polished Nitto 65 pillar, polished Vantage Comp rims on M900 hubs... You get the picture. The only think Iwas missing was a 1 1/4" threaded fork that would look the part on the build. I bid on the Funk fork that recently sold in Germany (thanks again for the offer of help Andrea) but it went way beyond where I was prepared to go! I was starting to feel a bit dejected when all of a sudden, BAM!
I called around a few mates who own long-standing bike shops in the hope of finding something that would suit the build. I knew it was a long shot and wasn't surprised when a few of my aforementioned 'mates' laughed so hard they dropped their phones but to my amazement, me ol' Mate DC fromthe Fitzroy Revolution comes up with this!
The bloody thing is so perfect for the build that I won't even have to cut down the steerer!
All I need now is a quilled 1 1/4" ATAC stem with a cable hanger in 120mm, low rise. Surely not too much to ask...
Oh, yeah, and I got the fork for free!
