    Tange Switchblade Fork?

    So I had a buddy pick me up a Tange Switchblade fork he said ge came across. When I recieved it I was kind of confused. First off its chrome and secondly the crown looks totally different than what I was expecting. The steerer tube is over 8" long so before i cut it to fit my bike I was wanting to see if anyone could tell me more about itTange Switchblade Fork?-fork-front.jpg

    thanks for the info I am just used to seeing these forks with the 2 sets of bolts in the crown as opposed to by the fork legs. Im just not really to thrilled about the crown but i think for $40 it will look pretty nice on my 91 Klein Pinnacle. thanks for the post
