I'm hunting for some Girvin Vector 2 forks to add to my vintage Orange P7 which I have been renovating. I always wanted a set when I first got the bike and Orange was using them for their team riders, but never had the money back then to go ahead.

It's a long shot, but I need a 1'' steerer. Did they all have a standard length steerer or would this also need to be specified.

Anyone able to help? Happy to collect/ship as needed.

Thanks
Dan

Very nice.
I was really after the Vector 2s, which have the stem as part of the design, but what are you looking for for these? Do you have any other photos? Are they working OK, or in need of repairs.
Thanks!

Well they will need some attention...the Girvin ODS will need servicing/replacing. The ODS is currently locked but I have not looked into why as I am replacing it with a set of Pace RC36's for my restoration. I saw a ODS replacement on eBay so they are still knocking around. There is one Hex screw missing, which I sure is easily replaceable, arrow in photo. Decals will need replacing which I am sure Gil could sort for you. Apart from that it is in pretty good nick, a good polish and some love and attention and it will look as new when I bought it back in 95.

As for the price, they were destined for my loft, probably never to see the light of day again. I hate throwing stuff that has served me well which are not beyond repair but it does mean I have a full loft! So make me and offer that you are comfortable with and they're yours...clearly collection would be ideal (Farnham, Surrey) or you cover the postage. My email is in my profile...
