Hey Gang. I'm looking for a 27" fork for my early 70's restore. Upon doing the restore I have found that the fork was replaced at some point with a 700c chrome frame with Simplex drops. The frame has Campy so the goal is to find a new fork. All chrome would be great.

I have a fork off of a late 70's Peugeot gas pipe bike - white with chrome on lower forks. Has a lug crown and is for 27" wheels. Somehow it did not bend when someone crashed it - the top and down tubes buckled, however. I now have a nice rear triangle stool and parts for my Gitanes. Very Happy

Not as groovy as that all chrome one, nor as lightweight, but I'd send it to you for cost of shipping. PM your email if you want pics and specs.

The frame is Prugnat lugged so I'd prefer something from the original. There has to be one out there. All chrome would be great but the original probably wasn't.

Hi, I have a fork that came off a 80's team pro and is all chrome under the paint. From a bike of roughly 22" frame. You pay shipping from france and 5$ and its yours.
