Raleigh got a new Fork.

March 23, 2010

Yup, after over a year of looking I managed to find what I was looking for: An undrilled fischer crown track fork with a long enough steerer that was good enough to chrome.

Result.

I was looking for one of these in my size for quite some time and to my amazement just recently I managed to snag one and here it is, just completed, my 1974 Ilkeston Built, 531, Raleigh professional track bike. It wasn’t in the best of conditions to begin with but after a bit of tender love and care and a trip the the chromers for the forks it is back on the road and in full effect!

I need to grip an original Headbadge for it and a set of Campy cranks but apart from that I reckon it’s done. Boom, Here is to a great summer!
