    Funk Fat Fork - Titanium Steer Tube?

    I have a polished aluminum Funk Fat Fork and not sure if the steer tube is Titanium. I bought a Durango from Daryll back in 1991 with a Mag 20, but the Mag 20 was not available yet so he sent my frame with a Fat Fork and the Mag 20 to follow later when they became available. The steer tube looks like Titanium and is not magnetic. Here are some pictures, let me know what you think.

    Thanks guys, it is a nice fork too bad the frame did not make it this long. The short seat tube section sticking up from top tube and seat stays broke off just above the top tube during a storm back in 1990's. I still have it but never could get myself to do something with the broken frame.

    Any how the steer tube is bolted to the fork and the tubew does look like Ti. Could it be salvagable to anyones rebuild projects?

    If you send it eastward, I promise to build an awsome bike around it.

    6 1/2" is exactly what it needs. As if the fork was made to fit the frame
