I just picked up a Look frame for a good deal. It has been repainted in a non original paint job. There seems to be very limited info online so I hope you guys can help me out. As far as I can tell from searching the internet it is a KG176. Everything matches up to online pictures of a 176 but it has a threadless stering stem and I have not found any that way. Is it something else or has someone just mismatched the fork to the frame?

BTW I forgot to mention the steering tube is 1" and the frame will except standard 1" bearing cups.

I’d say it’s different fork & not keen on that paint job which I’d change.......
Good luck if you take it on as a project...

The paint job may be deceiving me but the fork looks like a Time, I'm sure they did a straight leg one like a Look HSC.

A little off-thread (no pun intended), but I have to chuckle at eBay auto translator.
It takes NOS (New Old Stock) on French listings, and translates to the English "our", the French word "nos", which is the plural of "notre".
Sad, I know, but it tickles me!

This is a useful site if you haven't found it already. Archive Look catalogues from 1987 onwards. Looks like yours is a KG176 from 1994.
