    A Lefty, or a Headshock will be your "plug and play" candidates. Otherwise, you'll need to source a non 1.5 milled press depth Cannondale adapter. They exist, but the 1.5 is the common one, which will not press fully, (or even halfly ) into your frame.

    Ah, so the outside would have to be turned down a bit on a lathe? That's not a problem, I have a lathe available. I see a lot of other forks are 1 1/8" dia. How long do I need? I estimated mine at 7 3/4"?? Can the others that are 8" and up just be cut short?
