Seeking 27" Chromemolly fork(6 posts)

Anyone know where I can find a Reynolds 531 Chromemolly fork for a 27" wheel? It was on a 27" 1977 Libertas from
Belgium. It is a luged, painted/polished chrome fork.
How nice?TJeanloz

Any bike shop can get a crappy one from J&B importers.

Other than that, I think you might have to go custom at this point to get a nice 27" fork.
No such thing!Alexx

Reynolds 531 is a chromium-manganese steel alloy, not a cro-mo alloy. If you want cro-mo, any bike shop would have a cheapo available, but these guys probably have the best price:

Otherwise, I'm pretty sure nobody makes any forks in 531 anymore. At least not in 27" size....

You may be able to find one from a touring bike company, but my recommendation if you really want a good 27" fork (as Alexx points out, not too many around anymore) would be to contact a frame builder and special order one. Have someone make you a custom fork... it wouldn't be hard for anyone who normally makes their own forks still.

These guys can do itcurlybike
