no relation to seller but saw this on ebay and it looks quite nice. not many seem interested so i figure it may go cheap.

Whoa. Fooking gorgeous. I'll be watching that.Ahimsa

I don't NEED one per se, but if it stays cheap I'll prolly pic it up for my next bike build.


the fork crown is very beautiful ....Spirito

perhaps as its a no-name you might pick up a good deal ...

perhaps it would go well with the no-name tange prestige frame at chucks bikes

for a small price you could have a fair quality, good looking steed in that shiny stuff we all like.

Hmmm......45 semolians huh?Ahimsa

I'd fit a 57 just fine. If only it had track ends. I'll have to see about the cost of getting it modified here locally. If it's cheap enough.....well.....

Add on those $200 Miche/Mavic track wheels from BikeWorks NYC....

Around $450 total I think.....

Ah I go again.

Looks very similar to the fork on my chromieLone Gunman

It looks identical in crown and tangs to the chrome fork (Tange champion tubing)I bought years ago as a replacement on my Mercian. Wished I knew if it had some Suntour marking on it somewhere. I just assumed it was a Tange.
