WTB-OEM early 90's hard fork 1" steerer 160+ length
looking for a cannondale or ritchey fork to go on my 1991 M500 mt bike.
must be 1" steerer and must be longer than 160 steerer tube length. if too long i can re-thread and cut off.
PM with pic and price.
im in chico,ca so be close or be willing to ship-thanks.
cash or paypal.
I purchased a Tange Hybrid fork from JensonUSA for $44.55. They sell a few different lengths and have both 1" or 1 1/8" steerer options. I purchased a 300mm which is a bit long but I cut it off to suit my build. You could get the 300mm and thread it to fit your frame. I actually changed over to threadless using a Cane Creek S2 headset. Don't have any pictures yet and I am still currently building it but will post some pictures as soon as I am done and time permits.
Here's a link to the fork I have.
I almost forgot, you have the M series which require a mountain fork. Here's what you might be interested in.
Thanks a ton. i found teh Tange locally and installed but its a heavy mother compared to the OEM cannondale or even an old ritchey logic. I think i found a ritchey logic used but would still want to find an OEM cannondale in the right length or longer.

I've got a question sorta related to this.
I've got a 1990 Marin with a 1-1/8 headset and threaded fork. I recently purchased a dirt cheap stem, but it turns out its for a 1" threaded fork.
If I were to buy a 1" fork, would I need to then also purchase a 1" threaded headset?
if for the same bike-unless you got spacers-it would not work on your bike.
and the answer is yes-all sizes bolted together must be same dimension...
