I love this fork .... I couldn't tell you why but I just do.

It has a simple elegance and is a very high quality fork... as a touring fork it was already quite rigid before it was shortened and there is virtually no flex under hard braking.

The fork's steerer was the perfect length to fit the 20 which is fitted with a Levin headset... no modification of the head tube was required. I did not install the quick release / adjust as the bike rarely gets folded and the stem and bars will be removed for packing the bike for travel.

If there was enough interest I would be happy to build a number of these for refit / replacement. Could match the original fork or build with custom geometry to suit any rebuild.

How will you treat the headtube ? cut it down or what ? Will the Nishiki races go to place ?

Tange 700c fork was shortened to handle a 20 inch wheel and required no adjustment for trail, V brake bosses replaced the original canti mounts.

Again, this fork looks so much better than the original.

Fork also came from the donor Nishiki and was rebuilt for a 20 inch wheel and possible suspension (correction)... the length, rake, and trail also work with the change in the chainstay drop to give the bike standard pedal clearance with 175mm cranks.
