WTB - [MEL] 1" Threaded fork and headset

Postby Rek » Thu Apr 23, 2009 3:17 pm

My fork is somewhat bent (wheel doesn't align with the brakes) and my headset is badly pitted. I'm not sure how much I have to match as far as sizes go - it's about 14.5cm from the top of the fork bridge to the top of the headset locknut. Wheels are 27x1 1/4", but my brakes should be ok on a 700c fork. I'm not too concerned about colour, I just want my brakes to work properly. Anyone have something suitable lying around?

It's for an old road bike. As the topic says, I'm in Melbourne (Springvale, CBD during the week).

I have a 27" chrome fork here you can have. The steerer is 148mm and I should be able to put a no-name headset (new bearings maybe req'd) together for you. The chrome is in good nick and they appear straight, but there is a small shallow dent (5mm dia) in one of the legs.

If you want it and are prepared to come out to Werribee, it will only cost you the price of your transportation.
