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.

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

Thanks,

A.
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.

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 crap....here I go again.

Cheers!

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.
